Fire Crackerz {Football Friday}



This a variation on my favorite Ranch Oyster Crackers. I swapped out the oyster crackers for Cheez-Its and added some red pepper flakes for a little heat. These were fantastic! I love Cheez-Its, so I know I would love them. 

This is super easy to make and can be made days in advance. These can pack a lot of heat, so adjust the red pepper accordingly. I used a lot and they were HOT. I suggest starting with a tablespoon of red pepper flakes and tasting the crackers. You can add more if you are a spicy heat lover.

In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients.  Spread crackers on large rimmed baking sheet.  Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway through.  Cool and store in resealable bag.

  8. Is that tsp or tbsp? You mentioned starting with a tablespoon but recipe uses tsp. They look just fabulous.

    1. Teaspoons - 3 teaspoons = 1 Tablespoon. I wanted to give people leeway on the heat

  10. I made these to take to the school where I teach and you would have thought I slaved for days and made the cheez-its from scratch. People went nuts over these! I am making a triple batch to give with my holiday baking gifts this year. This was truly brilliant.
