Don’t let the “spicy” scare you too much. They have a hint of spice, but they won’t have you running for a glass of water.

They’re also flavorful and super crunchy. But I’ll tell you ahead of time… they’re incredibly addicting!

Yield: 12 ounces of crackers

Savory and Spicy Crackers

Cruncy and flavorful, these savory and spicy crackers pack a punch!


  • 1 12-ounce box of cheddar crackers, like Cheez-Its
  • 1 package dry Ranch dressing/dip mix
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 250º F.
  2. Dump crackers into a 1-gallon resealable plastic bag.
  3. In a small bowl, mix oil, Ranch mix and other seasonings.
  4. Pour the mixture over the crackers in a bag. Close the bag and gently flip the bag so that the crackers become covered in seasoning. Remember... Cheez-Its are a bit more fragile than other crackers, so toss them GENTLY!
  5. When well-coated, spread the crackers on a baking sheet and bake them in the oven for 10 minutes. Let cool.


Minimize the red pepper flakes if you want them milder. Want more of a kick? Add 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper!

No matter the occasion, I hope these crackers become one of your go-to snacks!
