This spicy cheezit snack recipe is based on spicy bible study crackers; which if you have ever been at a bible study gathering in the south, you’ve had them; saltines, ranch mix, crushed red pepper, and canola oil.  

This recipe takes the firecracker saltines and pats them on the head and tells them to go take a nap, because they’re not needed anymore.

A friend’s husband calls this cheez it crack, another friend calls this her favorite thing ever, several girls on Princess cheer team beg me to make these for treats, I can make two – 2 gallon bags of this, and it’s gone in a day!

IF you’re looking for a Superbowl snack that will blow everyone away, but take no time at all, if you’re not a cook, not someone who excels in the kitchen… HERE IS YOUR RECIPE!  THIS IS IT!

You have found your go-to recipe hallelujah!
