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 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.
