    Wink Spicy no bake crackers

    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.

    Amazingly enough they do not get soggy. They stay crisp.
    This was my thought too so I just had to try these.

    I've only done this with oyster crackers. Never thought of using saltines. Think I'll have to give it a try.

    Do you use these as the bread replacement in your meatloaf? That would be a wonderful addition. I have always used oatmeal (as my mother does) but love the idea of a spicy cracker. Will plan on making them for movie night this weekend and next time I make meatloaf (monthly menu item) I will add these crackers. Thank you both, two ideas in one.

    Lizzietish, I am not a fan of spicy food, how much less would I use of the pepper flakes?

    shoreamhappy, the oatmeal you use in your meatloaf, is that raw oatmeal?

    Hi, Neighbor,
    I don't mean to butt in on your conversation, but... I use raw oatmeal in my meatloaf, too. I use the original rolled oats, not the quick-cooking kind. After it is mixed, I let it set a while so the oatmeal can absorb some of the moisture, then I bake as usual. This is a good way to add more fiber as well as more nutritive value to your meal.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Luce if you do not care for spicy foods I wouldn't use the whole amount this makes it pretty spicy. Maybe a quarter of this. There are 3 tsp in a TBLSP.

    These crackers are so good. We call them beer crackers. I just mix the ingredients in a large bowl, add the crackers and mix well, and stir every once in awhile for a couple of hours. Amazingly they're not oily. Yummy.
