Tips and tricks for Alabama Fire Crackers
I want a less heat, how can I do that and still get that classic Alabama firecracker flavor?
You can use less crushed red pepper flakes, or Dan-O’s Chipotle. You could also swap the Dan-O’s Chipotle for Dan-O’s Spicy. Alternatively, you can just use Dan-O’s Original with more ranch and black pepper if you need a mild yet still flavorful option.
My alabama fire crackers are awfully wet before baking, will they still crisp up?
Yea, they’ll be wet at the start but will crisp up no problem once you bake them in the oven. If they continue to be wet, just bake them a little longer.
I don’t like saltines, can I use other crackers?
Absolutely. Popular alternatives include ritz, butter crackers, and thin wheat crackers.
