  • 1 box cheese snack crackers Cheez-its
  • 2 tbsp spicy ranch salad dressing seasoning 1 package for spicy, 2 for extra bold spice
  • 1 tbsp red chili pepper flakes more or less to taste
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup canola oil, vegetable, or olive oil


  • STEP ONE - mix seasonings and oil together, make sure all the seasonings are mixed and not clumpy
  • STEP TWO - put cheese crackers in a gallon ziplock bag and pour oil-seasoning mix over crackers, gently mix until crackers are evenly covered
  • STEP THREE - every hour or so gently flip the bag or container
  • STEP FIVE - "marinate" the spicy crackers 6 hours or overnight
  • STEP SIX - place on a sheet pan with brown paper bag sheet, let "airdry and drain for about 30 minutes
  • STEP SEVEN - replace brown paper liner with the other half of the bag and place crackers on top. Cook for 30 minutes at 275° gently stirring crackers after 10 minutes and then again at 20 minutes.
  • STEP EIGHT - cool for about 10 minutes, serve them up and ENJOY!


Instead of baking them in the oven try using your Air Fryer for a single-serve portion!!! Fill the bottom of the basket with the feisty crackers and "air fry" for 3-4 minutes at 275-300 degrees. So Good!!
