Laurie’s Fire Crackers

Our friend Laurie cracked these out when we were piled in their RV for a fun weekend at Cycle Land and I couldn’t stop eating them. I’m pretty sure I ate at least half of the batch. They’re spicy and salty and awesome. When you break these out, they will be gone before you know it.


  • 1 box of unsalted saltine crackers (4 sleeves)
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 (1 oz.) packet of dry ranch dressing mix
  • 2 tbsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 8 cup plastic containers

Place 2 sleeves of crackers into each container.

In a bowl, mix oil, ranch mix, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder. Stir until well mixed.

Drizzle half the mixture into each container over the crackers.

Put lids on the containers and turn upside down every 5 minutes for 30 minutes.
