Spicy Ranch Ritz Crackers

By Ross Sveback, June 2, 2013

Why not customize the Ritz cracker for your next party? Here you take a full box of regular Ritz crackers and toss them in 8 tbsp (1 stick) of melted, unsalted butter.

In a separate bowl, combine one package Ranch Seasoning mix, 1 tbsp. red pepper flakes, 1 tsp. garlic powder and 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese – stirring to combine. Shake over buttered crackers and gently stir to coat crackers in mixture.

Place on a half sheet pan and bake in a 300 degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Enjoy!

    Looks delicious

  2. Mary B says:

    Small (11oz) or big box (15 oz) of Ritz?

  3. Erin says:

    how do you lay the out on the baking sheet? They do not fit as a single layer?

    • Ross Sveback says:

      Erin, I do not lay them out in a single layer – just place them in the sheet pan, making sure any that are stuck together and separated then throw them in to bake. It’s not necessary for them to be in single file. Make sense?

  4. Sharon says:

    I believe there are 2 different sizes of Ranch dressing packets. Which one do you use?

  5. Jeff Ehlers says:

    I used another recipe that said combine ingredients and shake and bake. This did not work. Some crackers have clumps of spices and others have little or none at all. Fail.

  6. Ross Sveback says:

    You can easily do these 3-4 days in advance, keep them sealed to stay crunchy!

  7. Jessica Harding says:

    I made these. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I served them with a cream cheese ball seasoned with a fiery, 6 pepper blend powdered seasoning and it was a major hit!

  8. Georganne Harrison says:

    I melted the butter and brushed it on a loaf of split French bread, then mixed the rest of the ingredients and put it on top of the butter on the bread. I put it under the broiler to melt everything. It was, by far, the best garlic bread we have ever had. Thanks for the recipe.
