I originally saw this recipe on a friend's blog, but it's been awhile. It's super easy and REALLY delicious. It's the perfect snack for any time of year, but I tend to feel like spicy snack stuff goes well with warm weather.

-1 box saltines or 1 bag of pretzels*
-1 1/3 cups oil (I prefer olive oil)
-1 tbsp cayenne pepper
-1 tbsp crushed red pepper
-1 pkg dry ranch dressing mix
-Add all ingredients to a large gallon-sized resealable bag and tilt from side to side to coat the crackers or pretzels.
-Let the bag rest 4 hours, turning over every ~30 minutes to coat.
-Open and enjoy, and try not to eat them all at once. (If you wait until the next day they are even hotter and tastier!)
*I usually make this recipe with twisty pretzels because I love pretzels. If you are making it with saltines it will be easier to use a food storage box rather than a bag, for better coating.
Do you have a favorite warm-weather snack?
