Smoky Ranch Saltines

Flavored saltines are a favorite snack in our house. They are so easy to make. They are great for travel snacks. You can make them in pretty much any flavor you can think of. From Buffalo wing-flavored, to spicy Fire-Eater saltines, to these smoky ranch saltines, you can’t go wrong with them.Smoky Ranch SaltinesIf you’re not gentle when tossing the saltines they will crumble and not get fully covered in the flavoring. If you double or triple this recipe make each sleeve of crackers in it’s own bag or you’ll have trouble getting the smoky Ranch seasoning to coat each individual saltine.

Also try my Buffalo wing, Fire-eater and lime pepper saltines.
