The Best!!


Can I just say that these are the best crackers I've EVER had! I could literally eat these all day long! I'm trying to decide if I want to crush them up and use them as breading for the chicken breasts I bought for dinner. Any suggestions???

That sounds delicious for chicken!
These little gems are also wonderful with some mozzarella cheese melted on top (and a dot of hot sauce if you like spicy :)

Thanks for the tip, Nancy - I haven't seen them out yet. Piggy-backing Judy's comment... if you do like hot sauces, try green Tobasco Sauce for a very refreshing change. It has a bit of a kick, but doesn't burn like red Tobasco Sauce. When I discovered it I carried it with me almost wherever I went. And I've tested it on just about everything I eat. Can I have a meal with my green sauce please :) ? I haven't ever crushed Triscuits. Can you crush them fine enough, I wonder. The flavor would be outstanding, even with just the original Triscuits.

Who needs chicken? Just cheese and crackers for dinner. We discovered those about a year ago and now I can't get them at the grocery store. :-(

The Black Pepper and Olive Oil Triscuits are good too - get some muenster cheese and you've got a meal!

Nancy, hope it's ok that I just jump back into this conversation...I think the Triscuits would grind up fine enough if you had them in a food processor of some sort!

And aspiring f.o.o.l. : PLEASE tell me where to buy GREEN TOBASCO sauce!!! I have never seen it!!! We would LOVE that, I'm sure! I'm laughing picturing you carrying it in your purse, hoping to find meals to go with it...LOL

Nancy, Hi again, from me, too. I'll reply to Judy in trust that that's ok with you.

Judy, you have me laughing now, too, in memory of finding and then coveting this sauce, and the lengths I've gone to over time to have and use it. There are many episodes to this saga but you might enjoy knowing that my very first bottle came from a diner in Wyoming, where I discovered it - a condiment on the table - while traveling with my husband. A cheery and comical waitress sold me a bottle 'for the road' from her supply.

I couldn't find it nearby or easily myself for a while. But then my local grocer ordered it for me and also tested it on the shelf, too. I have found and tried other brand names in my pursuit. Tobasco is by far the best in my opinion. I don't have a box with the bar code on it. But it's McIlhenny Co. Tobasco Brand Green Pepper Sauce.

Incidentally, my quest for this green sauce led accidentally (by miscommunicating my Spanish in both word and gesture) but fortunately, to the discovery of the perfect Chile Verde. Also while traveling - California this time. It's made with pork, tomatilla and jalapeno, among other ingredients and is also startling and exquisite in flavor. I have found recipes for it on-line but, alas, no recipe and no restaurant has yet matched that perfect first one.

p.s. Chili Verde is the correct spelling
