1 box saltines
1 1/4 cups of oil
1 to 2 Tblsp. red pepper flakes depending on how hot you like it.
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder (optional)
3 Tblsp. or 1 pkg of hidden valley ranch dry mix. I buy mine by the jar.
Mix the last 4 ingredients in a food processor/magic bullet/blender
Pour mixture in a bowl with a lid. Add crackers put lid on bowl turn bowl for appoxamently 3 min. Or until crackers are covered with oil mixture.
Let stand overnight this way the oil mix will soak into the crackers.
Enjoy with dip, cheese, seafood salad or just by themselves.
WARNING the heat creeps up on you.
