This Wheat Thins recipe is a slight twist on a classic cracker. It uses taco seasoning to deliver a spicy treat.
Our family is a huge fan of Wheat Thin crackers. Reduced-fat, to be exact. You know, to make up for the brownies and the cookies. However, when I was dreaming up these crackers, I came to my trusty taco seasoning. I use the stuff in everything, and it was so perfect in these southwestern wheat thin crackers.
These are really fun and easy to make at home. If you love Wheat Thins, you will love these crackers. They have a slightly different crunch unless you can get them paper thin, but the taste is spot on.
I was making these with the “assistance” of a toddler and was hurrying to finish before my 4-month-old woke up, so mine aren’t quite paper thin. You gotta do what you gotta do, you know? They still tasted terrific. The taco seasoning added a perfect southwestern flair and just enough spice to keep things interesting.
I love taking a product that I’d typically buy at the store and trying to make it myself. It’s a fun challenge and I always feel great knowing exactly what goes into my food and what my kids are eating. I’ve done homemade cheez-its (that dang “z” drives me bonkers), and I definitely need to try these copycat Velveeta shells. What should I take on next?
