This is a real fun recipe to do. If you have never tried the spicy crackers, this is a must. If you do not like too spicy you can cut down on the Red pepper I suppose. As for me, I think they are great! Let me know what you think about them by e-mail at

My cousin wanted to try the Italian dry mix instead of ranch, but never heard back how that went. The ranch works for me. Happy eating!

1 Pound Box Keebler Zesta Crackers
(any brand will do, these are the best)
2 tablespoons Crushed Red Pepper
1 package Dry Ranch Dressing Mix
1 ½ cup of Vegetable Oil
1 gallon Container (glass if possible)

Mix ingredients and separate into two dishes. Take two sleeves of crackers and dump into the glass jar, add one dish of mixture, roll to mix. Add last two sleeves of crackers and the balance of the seasoning, roll to mix.

This is an early day project, as you must roll the jar every two hours for 12 hours. But it is sooooo worth it!
