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. They 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.

  1. I’m gonna love these, I try to buy the Chez-it Grooves, but the store doesn’t always have the flavors I like. I’ve made these before from a recipe my granddaughter gave me, but it used regular saltine crackers and it was hard to make sure the seasoning was on all of them.

  2. I use 1/2 cup butter instead of the oil and use Fiesta Ranch mix and 1 tsp. red pepper flakes. It's just the right amount of "zip" for us. Also, I bake the mix for 1 hour at 250, stirring every 15 minutes. It's no longer oily that way and we like it crisper. It is fantastic; you cannot stop at just one handful!

    1. Did you lay them out on a cookie sheet or are they okay to dump in to like a roaster pan and stir every 15, which is how I do my jalapeno pretzels.

  3. I was looking for fun recipes for Super Bowl Sunday and I found this Cheez-it recipe. I am so happy right now. Thank for sharing

  4. 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.

  5. Making a batch of these for my brother in law for Christmas, but thinking about using tabasco cheezits! 🙂 Can't wait to make my test batch this weekend!

  6. These look awesome! I like to make my chex mix in a crock pot – do you think it would work for these also? Can't wait to try them!

  7. What a creative idea and great name!!! As I'm getting older, I find I like my food hotter and hotter. These sound really yummy…and HOT!
