Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
1â…” cups olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon black pepper
2 (1 ounce) envelopes ranch dressing mix
3 Tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 (16 oz.) package of saltine crackers 4 sleeves of crackers
Grab a huge ziplock bag. at least a gallon or more. We used a 2 gallon bag for our doubled recipe and it was still more than enough.
Open the bag and pour in the olive oil, the garlic and onion powder, the black pepper, ranch dressing mix and crushed red pepper flakes.
Close the bag and using your hands, knead the ingredients together combining the oil and spices. (this can also be done in a bowl and stirred, however you will have a lot of it stick to the sides when pouring it into the bag).
Now, place the crackers inside the bag. Yes, all of them.
Re-seal the bag and turn the bag over and over again coating the crackers with the spice mixture. The more you do this, the better coverage there is. Then, let the bag sit for about an hour and turn it again a few more times.
Allow the bag to sit for at least 12 hours, if not more. (overnight is good)
Remove the crackers and serve.
