1 package (16 ounce size) saltine or oyster crackers
1 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 envelope (1 ounce size) Ranch salad dressing mix


Unwrap crackers and place in a one-gallon glass jar with a lid, or stand crackers on their ends in a large bowl or Dutch Oven.

In a small bowl, mix all remaining ingredients. Pour mixture over the crackers.

If using a jar, close lid and roll the jar every five minutes for one hour, until crackers are coated with spice mixture.

If using a bowl, let mixture sit on crackers for 15 minutes, then carefully transfer the crackers to a second bowl by hand. Pour mixture from first bowl over crackers and let sit 15 more minutes. Repeat this cycle two more times.

Remove crackers from any remaining liquid and store in an airtight container.

Serve with ranch dressing for dipping, if desired.
