Who doesn’t like cheesy ranch crackers?
- Cheese Ritz Bits Cheese Cracker Sandwiches- I don’t recommend the peanut butter-filled ones with the seasonings used in this recipe.
- Vegetable oil – Or Canola oil. You want a light flavored oil.
- Ranch seasoning – One 1-ounce packet of dry ranch dressing mix.
- Garlic powder, onion powder, and dried dill. – Adds extra flavor boost.
- Crushed red pepper flakes – This is optional. It makes them spicy, so if making them for the kids, just omit them.
How to Make Cheesy Ranch Ritz Bits Crackers
You don’t even need to turn the oven to make this easy snack! That’s a huge plus in our house during the summer months.
Place the two 8.8-ounce boxes of Ritz Bits Cheese Sandwich Crackers into a gallon-size zip lock bag.
In a measuring cup or small bowl, mix the oil, ranch seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, dried dill, and crushed red pepper (if using).
Drizzle the oil mixture over the crackers in the bag and gently mix until the crackers are coated.
Every 5 minutes, give the bag a gentle shake and toss until all the crackers are evenly coated, and no oil settles in the bottom of the bag.
If you like, but it’s unnecessary, spread them out on a baking sheet lined with paper towels to soak up any extra oil.
That’s it! Easy peasy cheesy ranch crackers.
