Mexican Spice Cheese Crackers, perfect for any party of for tailgating! Made with cheese-its, taco seasoning, and cilantro! SO ADDICTING! We love to have these around the house at all times. Just too good and too easy to not make on the regular!
Print Recipe


  • 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!)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro dried or fresh


  • Preheat oven to 250F.
  • 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.
  • Spread crackers on a large baking tray. Cook for 20 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
  • Store in an air-tight container or resealable bag.


  • You can use your favorite store bought taco seasoning to make this recipe, or whip up some homemade.
  • It's best to use your hands to mix the crackers in the oil and seasonings. Be gentle so that they don't break.
  • Spread the crackers in a fairly even layer on the baking sheet so that they crisp up evenly.
