I am addicted to these easy Ranch Party Crackers! They use only 4 ingredients and they’re one of my favorite easy cold appetizer recipes!
A recipe doesn’t have to be complicated to be a favorite. That is totally the case with the Ranch Party Crackers. They are one of the best easy cold appetizer recipes I have.
Not too long ago, I made these for a get together with some friends. We all sat there gabbing and munching and before we knew it, they were gone.
These crackers are totally addicting and they have a nice little kick from the crushed red pepper. But, if you don’t like the heat, you can always leave that out or cut it back. They will still be crazy good.
I love that you can easily make a big batch of these if you’re feeding a crowd. Or, if you feel like making a smaller batch, you can easily scale it back. I love having options.
As a bonus, they don’t have to be served warm so you can make them ahead of time.
