CRACKER SUBSTITUTES

If you’re not into mini crackers you could also use:

  • pretzels
  • regular size saltine crackers, 4 sleeves fit perfectly in the gallon ziplock bag
  • oyster crackers
  • mini wheat crackers
  • chickpeas…these two recipes are super good Airfryer or oven methods…Crunchy Curry Chickpeas and Spicy Jalapeno Chickpeas
  • gluten-free crackers or pretzels

HELPFUL HINTS

Instead of air drying them for a couple of hours you can bake them at a low temperature, 250-300 degrees, for about 10-15 minutes. Be careful not to burn…the red pepper flakes burn easy and really taste yucky when burnt! Take if from experience🤦‍♀️

You can easily skip mixing these mini crackers in a bowl and go directly to the plastic zip lock gallon bag step.

Store these yummies in an airtight container. Before serving gently shake the storage container before serving.
