    1 package of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix (dry powder package)
    1 tbsp of garlic powder

    I've made these for years also, but with just the ranch mix. The garlic and red pepper sounds great! Also, instead of saltines, I've used "oyster" crackers (the little round ones that people often use for soup). You would need to reduce the amount of oil you use depending on the amount of crackers. - 12/2/08

    This is a fabulous recipe and when I made them and took them to my weight loss meeting, they went over really great. The recipe went home with several of the members. I enjoy them as a snack with green tea. I also used unsalted tops for myself at home. Having some this evening for a snack. - 3/4/18

    I added a sprinkle of parmesean cheese and baked them in the oven for 15 reminutes. The only thing I would do differently next time is leave out the garlic powder, way too overpowering for my liking. Good recipe but when all is said and done..its just crackers. - 10/24/12

    I have always made these crackers with canola oil until I found out how bad it is for you. Instead of olive oil, what about coconut oil? - 8/18/12
