Hello! I thought I’d start this blog with some appetizer recipes since pretty much EVERYONE loves appetizers and this one is easy to make!
With a house that’s way too big unless all the kids are home, my husband and I enjoy entertaining, and have the perfect basement in which to watch a lot of football (and play pool, ping pong, and foosball). Our friends frequently join us for NFL and K-State sports, and that being said, we recently hosted a Super Bowl party. I want to share some of the easy, unique appetizers that were consumed quickly.
I found this recipe on the Pedro Lopez Brand Facebook page and it calls for chili powder and crushed red pepper to give the crackers a kick! It was also very easy to make so the next time you need a crowd-friendly appetizer in a rush, you can whip these up in a jiffy!
Gather all your ingredients together before you get started (I hate it when I get started with something and then realize I’m missing a key ingredient). Once you’ve got it all sorted, combine the oil and seasonings together.
Pour the mixture on the oyster crackers and stir to coat. Then spread on a cookie sheet and let dry (approximately 30 minutes). Store in an air tight container (if there’s any left after your friends leave).
Voila! Super fast, super easy and super yummy.
I hope you enjoy these as much as we did. Would love to hear your impressions or feedback below!
