1 box saltine crackers (4 sleeves)
1 2/3 cup canola oil
1 package dry ranch dressing
about 2 tbsp (or to taste) crushed red pepper flakes
I also added parmesan cheese (the kind in the shaker). Dump the crackers in a large bowl (I used a gallon ziplock baggie). Wisk other ingredients together and pour over crackers. With a spatula start turning the crackers (or if using a baggie just seal and turn). Continue until the mixure is absorbed into the crackers.
You might think the crackers would be soggy, but in fact, they are crunchy with a wonderful flavor. We used the whole 2 tbsp of crushed red pepper flakes because we like it hot. It's totally not overwhelming though. If you try it, leave a comment to let me know what you think.
