My days consist of being immersed in recipe after recipe, cocktail after cocktail. A lot of times, I’ll make small batch versions of the recipes I test, or will make the drinks with tiny amounts of alcohol to make sure they taste right. But if I spent all day eating and drinking…I think Pat would have me go back to working in an office! Usually I’m good at the self control…but not today. Today I made Mexican Spice Cheese Crackers. Today I made a lot of them. Let’s just say that there won’t be any left for Pat to sample. …Oops…Mexican Spice Cheese Crackers, perfect for any party of for tailgating!

Ingredients

  • 1 (13.7 ounce) box White Cheddar Cheese-its (I used reduced fat)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning (I always use Old El Paso !)
  • 5 tablespoons chopped cilantro (dried or fresh)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250F.
  2. In a large bowl, use your hands to mix oil and crackers, coating the crackers completely. Add the taco seasoning and cilantro and mix until well combined. Take care not to break the crackers as you mix with your hands.
  3. Spread crackers on a large baking tray. Cook for 20 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
  4. Store in an air-tight container or resealable bag.

I can see how self-control would be difficult with a bunch of these around! I try making smaller batches to avoid the problem too!

All your Mexican-inspired recipes have my attention! I love the flavour combinations in these crackers and I am sure my daughter and husband will love them!
Justine | Cooking and Beer
I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have any of these crackers left over for anyone else either! I ADORE this idea. Such a cute way to spice up ordinary crackers! Pinned!
Stephanie

Melanie | Melanie Makes
I find regular Cheez-its addictive - I can't imagine how many I'd eat if I made them like this? So. Good.
Beth
I can totally see myself bringing these to a party. Easy to make but the party guests will be wowed!
Terry
Does the oil make the crackers soggy? Could Vegetable spay be used to coat the crackers with thye Mexican spaices?
    Becky Hardin
    Baking them crisps them right back up. You could try the spray but I'm worried the spices might not coat all the way, but definitely worth a try!
