Spicy pretzels !!!

Pretzels! I always thought that the ones that tasted good (like the salted or the yummy chocolate covered ones) were not good for you, while the ones that were actually good for you (the unsalted, fat-free!) tasted, well, tasteless !!! 
Then, I got this recipe from friends at work. I have slightly tweaked it to suit my love for spice and (occasional) low-cal conscience! Try one and I am sure you will want more ;) 

Unsalted mini pretzels (fat free) - 23 oz (2 1/2 packs of 9.25 oz packs)
Spicy ranch dressing - 1 sachet
Onion powder - 1 tbsp
Garlic powder or garlic salt - 1 tbsp (I used garlic powder for my low-sodium preference)
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp or according to taste
Olive oil - 6 tbsp

Method :
Take a large mixing bowl and put the pretzels in it.
Mix together the powdered ranch, onion powder, garlic powder and red chilli powder in a small bowl.
Add the oil to the pretzels and mix, until evenly and well-coated.
Sprinkle the spice mixture over the oiled pretzels and mix evenly.
Pre-heat the oven to 250 F.
Spread the pretzels evenly on a sheet pan or a cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
Mix once and bake for another 15 minutes.
Once they are done, let it cool (you will not have anything left once you start trying it while it is still hot/warm!) and store it in air-tight bags.
They should be good for a week to 10 days, in case there are some left ;)
