One handful of these crispy oyster crackers is never enough. Taco seasoning and chili powder give the munchies a fun southwestern flavor. Partygoers always come back for more. - Diane Earnest Newton, Illinois

"Very simple and quick. a good way to use up leftover oyster crackers. Very mild flavor but a lot better than plain. I made 1/3 the original recipe. I mixed the spices with the oil and tossed with the crackers and that worked out great. 15 minutes was enough in the oven."

"I have used this recipe time and again!

I made adjustments on the recipe to suit my tastes: This is what I did:
I used 2 packages of soup crackers: (12.5 oz. each), 2 cups Cheddar cheese goldfish
crackers, 2 Tbsp. sugar, 1/4 cup ground cumin as I'd used up my taco seasoning supply, & used 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning in place of the oregano. I had the chili powder, so I used that! I use a large roasting pan to prepare my snack mixes as it's deep and I don't have to be concerned
about the mix falling of the pan when a 15x10x1" pan would be used & when I stir
the mix! I've prepared this taco mix for our Chapel coffee breaks and everyone likes the flavor! Thank you for this recipe, Diane
Earnest! delowenstein"
