Spicy Southwest Pretzels
Living in Oklahoma has changed my tastebuds a bit, so to speak.
The flavors in the southwest are full of spice and wonder. The other day while at my friend Melisa’s (pronounced Ma lee sa) place, she served these amazing spicy/savory pretzels and I am now addicted.
I seem to be using that word a lot lately in regard to food – addicted.
Back to the pretzels…
Seriously, once you start popping these things into your mouth, you can’t stop.
Mix together a few ingredients in a bag or bowl and dump in a whole bag of pretzels. Let it set a couple of hours or overnight. Can it be easier?
Leave me a comment…it makes me smile!
- ¾ c. canola oil
- 1 ½ t. lemon pepper
- ½- 1 t. cayenne pepper (to taste)
- 1 ½ t. garlic powder or salt
- 1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing dry seasoning mix
- Dump first 5 ingredients together into a gallon Ziploc baggie or large bowl. Squish together or mix together with spoon to mix well. Pour in a one-pound bag of pretzels. Close baggie and shake until seasoning and oil is over all pretzels. If using bowl, stir well. Let pretzels marinate for 2 hours before serving. Will appear oily at first but it will go away after 2 hours.
