Steps (4)

  • Step 1
    Pour the olive oil, seasoning mix, red and black peppers into a gallon-size Glad® Zipper bag. Seal the bag and thoroughly mix the ingredients together until well blended.
  • Step 2
    Place all of the crackers into the bag, re-seal, and gently turn the bag over several times to coat the crackers with the spice mixture. Be sure to coat as thoroughly as possible.
  • Step 3
    Let the bag sit at room temperature overnight.
  • Step 4
    When ready to bake, preheat oven to 250°F. Lay the crackers on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, to seal in the spices and dry slightly. Store in an airtight container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Can't Eat Just One If you make these, be prepared to eat more than one. They are great little snacks. It's amazing how this recipe turns plain old soda crackers into a great snack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SPICY These are pretty good! They are definitely hot, but if you like spicy snacks these are for you! I'm not sure if I would make them again, just because I'm not sure they're actually better than snacks I can just buy already made, but they're definitely worth a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shut the front door! These are amazing! I only used 1 cup of oil ( all I had left) and added 1/4 top of garlic powder. These are awesome by themselves or with a hearty soup. I served them with broccoli cheese soup and they paired well. I will be making these again.
