Texas Firecrackers
Recipe type: Appetizer
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 4 sleeves saltine crackers
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 (1-ounce) packet ranch dressing mix
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon granulated gralic
  1. Unwrap the four sleeves of saltine crackers and stand them on their sides like dominoes in a large plastic container with a tight-fitting lid.
  2. In a glass measuring cup, whisk together the canola oil, ranch dressing mix, red pepper flakes, dried dill, and granulated garlic. Pour the seasoned oil over all the crackers, up and down the rows. Let stand for about 5 minutes, cover the container, and flip it upside down so that all the oily, herby goodness that fell to the bottom is now on the top and can soak the crackers from the other end!
  3. Flip the container every 30 minutes or so, eventually giving them a gentle shake all around. The crackers will be ready to eat in about 2 hours.
