Alabama Fire Crackers


Recipe , inspired by Sharon, at the Honour System.For the dip I have picked a Classic, Quesco Blanco Dip.These are perfect for game night or for binge watching Netflix over the weekend.All you need is a pack of saltine cookies, some seasoning and you’re in business.For the dip I have selected a cheesy dip because I feel we need some cheese to balance out the fire in the Alabama crackers.

These are so perfect because you can prepare them ahead of time. They usually last about a week in a cool dry place stored in an airtight ziplock bag.Leave the crackers overnight in the Ziploc bag and you are set for your party the next day. Did I mention they were easy? 😉 You can bake your crackers from scratch but I am feeling lazy, its Friday after all. All we need is a quick snack fix.You can moderate the chilis if you like, but they really are what makes this snack fun and unique. Like I said earlier, you could compliment it with something creamy to dip.

For Dip

  1. In a heavy bottom pan over medium heat, add the half and half, allow it to come to a simmer then slowly start adding the cheese while constantly whisking and continue to do that until all of the cheese has been added and the mixture is nice and smooth.
  2. Add the green chilies, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper, cook for 1 more minute, then transfer to a bowl and allow to cool slightly before topping it and serving it.
  3. Top it off with some fresh cilantro, pickled jalape├▒os and chopped tomatoes
