Too Easy Not to Try

Take 30 seconds to give them a heavy dusting with some ranch seasoning and you are munching in style. If you need to, give them a light spritz with cooking spray to help the seasoning stick.

As I said, this is your chance to make this recipe your own. There are loads of great seasoning blends you might try in place of ranch. Just ask yourself, “would this make a good Dorito flavor?” if the answer is yes, you might have a winner.

It is a simple matter of how much effort you want to invest in your own snacking. If you are unwilling to invest some effort you will always snack at a low level. It’s up to you. Are you going to snack like some amateur, or are you willing to snack in the big leagues? I think you know the answer.

Until next time, may the snacks be with you… always.
