I add dill (about 1 T) and use oyster crackers (which are easier to stir). Giving these for Christmas gifts this year with a little jar of chili seasoning.

I have been making this for years however I use pretzels, oyster crackers, rice chex (or any kind you like) and peanuts. Add cayenne pepper to the oil. I base the amount of cayenne by the color of the oil for heat. I also let mine sit upside down overnight. It's always the snack mix that is requested at parties.

I am always asked to bring these to parties. I bake them for 5 minutes so that they are dried. People love them. I've also used Multigrain cracker also.

Been making these for years ... but they really need to be baked in a 250 degree oven for about 15 to 20 minutes (stirring once or twice during that time). Baking gets rid of that greasy feel, but they taste fabulous.

Such a great recipe! I use different types of dry dressing mixes (crackers add sooo much to soups when they're crushed up in the bowl) and they're great served with assortment of cheeses/salami/meats/spreads...there are never any left over at the end of the gathering! I am terrible about over seasoning....not with this....it's perfect.

My grandmother had a recipe for something similar, made with oyster crackers and dill- however, hers suggested baking the crackers on cookie sheets at 250F for an hour. I suspect that your spicer saltine version could be treated the same way- the seasonings sound spot-on! Will be trying this soon. Thanks for the recipe! :)

Everyone loves when I make these, to add a little more kick I use the fiesta ranch.

Question: Do you have to use a whole cup of oil? Looks delicious!
