  • 1 pound box of saltine crackers
  • 2 Tbsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/3 cups canola oil
  • 1 package dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix


  1. Put a box of saltine crackers in a gallon jar. Yes they will fit and it really does need to be a big gallon jar with a lid that screws on!
  2. Mix oil, red pepper flakes and ranch dressing mix together. Pour over crackers in the jar.
  3. Turn and roll jar frequently for 48 hours before eating to insure that crackers are coated thoroughly.
