Ranch Crackers

I first had these crackers during a potluck at work. And let's face it, when you see a tupperware container filled with saltines next to all the homemade potluck goodness you don't even give them a second glance.

Apparently that's the case with everybody as there were a lot of these leftover. So when the person that made them stopped by my desk for me to taste them what could I do? I am so glad I did!!! He was even kind enough to let me bring some home for Keith to try and we were hooked at that point. I then made some to take to our family reunion weekend and we all sat out by the pool nibbling. The one comment that is made over and over is that these Ranch Crackers remind you of the Chicken in a Biscuit crackers.

So good, so cheap and so easy!


Ranch Crackers

1 - box saltine crackers (4 sleeves)
1 - cup Canola oil
1 - package Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
1/2 - tsp red pepper flakes


Take all the crackers out of the sleeves and line them up on their sides in a very large bowl or plastic container. Mix the oil, dressing mix and pepper flakes together and drizzle over the crackers. After drizzling about half the mixture stop and re-stir, then complete the drizzling. If using a plastic container place the lid on top and gently tumble the container back and forth so that the liquid can get over all the crackers. I put it on the counter and every time I walked by I would flip the container again.

I put the crackers in a clean container before taking to the potluck so that they would look nicer. :)

And that's all there is to it!

These sound like a winner!! I love saltines and Ranch dressing. I have made the crack snack using oyster crackers, but have never had these made with saltines. Thank you so much for sharing. I can't wait to try them. Love & blessings from NC!
