This is a snack recipe that was widely circulated on a number of foodie websites. It appears to have originated from Hidden Valley’s website. After trying a revved-up sample from a friend who put her own kick on it, I’ll share my version. I cannot stop eating them.
1 packet (1 ounce) Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
1 16oz. bag premium Oyster crackers
1 cup canola or XV olive oil
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
Dash of Lawry’s seasoned salt, to taste
Dash of El Yucateca XXX Habañero hot sauce, to taste
Whisk the canola oil, dressing mix and dry spice ingredients in a bowl until blended. Add the hot sauce to taste and stir well. Preheat your oven to 250° F. Pour the canola oil seasoning over the crackers in a larger mixing bowl and fold carefully until the crackers are well coated. Place evenly on a cookie sheet and warm in the oven for 15-20 minutes until just golden. Remove and serve.
