The other day my neighbor called me about a recipe someone had sent him that he could not download. I had him forward the email to me and I was able to download it and send it back to him. Today, he brought me a little bag of that recipe - Cayenne Pretzels. They are really good but do have a tendency to bite back! Thought I would post it since it would be a good snack for this fall and winter season. Probably really good with a cold beer!!
1 c. vegetable oil - or 1/2 c. vegetable oil and 1/2 c. olive oil
1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 pkgs. (16 oz. each) pretzel sticks
In a small bowl, mix oil, dressing mix, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Put pretzels in a large bowl and pour oil mixture over pretzels - stir to coat. Divide pretzels between two ungreased 10 x 15 x 1 baking pans. Bake at 200 degrees for l hour, stirring occasionally. Cool completely and store in an airtight container. The longer they sit the spicier they tend to get.
