Ranch Snack Mix

This is the "yummiest" snack mix I think my mouth has ever snacked on.  Seriously.  My mom gave me a cookbook when I "went veg" called Vegetarian and More! by Linda Rosensweig.  It's full of vegetarian recipes with optional meat add-ins (for the carnivore husband).  Anyway, this recipe is from that cookbook and I'll definitely be making it again . . . for that next snack attack!

3 cups plain oyster crackers
1 cup thin pretzel sticks
1 cup wheat square cereal (such as Chex)
1/4 cup unsalted peanuts
1 package (1 ounce) ranch salad dressing mix
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup vegetable broth
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  In a 15" x 10" or larger baking dish, combine the crackers, pretzels, cereal, and peanuts.

In a small bowl, combine the salad dressing mix, oil, broth, chili powder, and garlic powder.  Pour over the cracker mix and toss to coat.

Bake, stirring frequently, for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the crackers begin to brown.  Let cool.

Makes 8 servings

  1. omg, YUM. I need something to snack on that isn't ice cream these days. ;) Didn't I see you facebook-ing about a tomatillo/black bean chili recipe? How was that?



I'd love to hear your thoughts!
