Yesterday a friend invited me last minute to lunch at the beach. Since I hate showing up empty handed I made up a quick batch of kicked up crackers. They’re the perfect summer time snack and simple to construct. I used half a box of each Cheez Its and mini club crackers, combined with 2 tablespoons dry ranch dip mix, 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes (2-3 tablespoons for a real kick) and 2 tablespoons of oil. Mixed around in a bag and placed in an airtight container.
