I love recipes that take something that I already love and make it even better. Introducing Cowboy Ranch Cheese-its! You all know Cheese-its. The square shape, the rigid edges and that hole in the middle – everything about this baked snack cracker is the real deal, especially the cheese. And this recipe takes that tastes and make it even better…hard to believe huh?!
I am always looking for a new snack to bring along with me to parties and pot lucks. These Cowboy Ranch Cheese-its are the perfect options. They don’t take too long to make and the list of ingredients isn’t very long, in fact it’s things that are usually in my pantry. So that means no last minute run to the grocery store!
Some like it hot! You can adjust this recipe if you want to kick up the heat a little. Just add some red pepper flakes. The more you add the hotter it gets! Or if you are like me and can barely handle mild salsa, you can keep it cool and don’t add any. Find what you like.
We are planning a road trip so and I’m going to be adding this to the list of snacks to bring along. I’m always craving something salty. These Cowboy Ranch Cheese-its are the perfect snack food. I bet you can’t eat just one…or two…or three!
Give them a try! I know you are going to love them!
