Oh RITZ®. With your creamy buttery topping and never-ending supply of snack options…. How I love thee…let me count the ways. Thankfully, RITZ® crackers are easily found at my local Walmart. It’s like the clouds opening up and the sun shining down on me when I see the wall of red.
When my busy body has to leave the house and I know we are going to be gone for quite some time, my go-to snack is simple. RITZ® crackers, a sliced apple and a few slices of colby-jack cheese. The protein staying powder keeps me going until my next meal.
In a container with a lid arrange 1 sliced apple, 1-2 oz. of sliced cheese and 6 whole wheat RITZ® crackers. Perfect nomage.
I love avocados. I want to eat one every day. One of my favorite tricks when trying to keep my carbs down for the day is to use cucumbers as my ‘chips’ for the smashed avocados which I like to call my homemade guacamole. When I have carbs to spare, I have no problems busting out my favorite red box. Cucumbers and avocados taste just as good on top of a RITZ® cracker as they do all alone. I like to pair my snack with a sliced tomato to up my vegi count and keep my calories in check.
More Than Just Guacamole
- 8 RITZ® crackers
- 1 avocado
- 1 roma tomato sliced
- 1 cucumber peeled and sliced

- Put avocado in a bowl and discard the peel.
- Use a fork to smash the avocado. Squirt with lemon juice to your liking.
- Add salt and pepper to your liking.
- Set aside.

- Enjoy the rest of the avocado with the rest of the cucumber slices using them as 'chips' or enjoy some more RITZ® crackers.
I love, love, love the combination of cream cheese and smoked salmon. While I prefer it on a bagel, I’m not a fan of all the empty calories and carbs. I have found that a healthier option for me are the yummy original RITZ® crackers. The crunch, the bit of salt and that light buttery topping is the perfect snacking combination. This is my go-to evening snack and treat. For some reason it always makes me feel so fancy!
More Than Just Salmon
- 10 RITZ® crackers
- 1 small package smoked salmon
- 4 oz light cream cheese more or less depending on your tastes
- Arrange crackers on a plate.
- Smear with light cream cheese.
- Break up the salmon and place pieces on top of the cream cheese.
- Serve immediately.
I’m busy. While I am not super style mom busy, I am still busy. When I need a snack I need something quick, especially when working from home. Lingering too long in the kitchen can be dangerous. One of my favorite daytime snacks is tuna. A whole can is packed with mega omega and protein while keeping it all low in calories. Pair it with some vegetables and crackers and you’ve got the perfect healthy snack. Just put the tuna on top of the cracker and snack away! When your bowl is empty enjoy your crunchy green pepper.
More Than Just Tuna Salad
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 can of light tuna drained
- 1 tbsp relish
- 1 tbsp light may
- 1 celery stalk chopped
- 1 roma tomato sliced
- 6 RITZ® whole wheat crackers
- Cut the top off of your bell pepper.
- Clean out the insides and rinse well.
- Chop your celery. I like mine sliced but you can do it any way you like.
- In a bowl add your tuna (drained) , the relish, light mayo and celery.
- Mix well.
- Place the tuna mixture inside the bell pepper.
- Arrange crackers on the plate.
- Dip the crackers, put the mixture of top of crackers or just enjoy with a fork.

The hashtag is cracking me up… it’s just like the song, but not. And now that’s all I can think about as I stare into my pantry.
ahahah I was humming that all day when I was working on this post.
Those are some great Ritz options. I also just like plain peanut butter on a Ritz…..so yummy!
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
I absolutely LOVE the tuna salad inside a bell pepper bowl. It looks so yummy.
That More than Just Salmon recipe looks really tasty! I love Ritz crackers.

These snacks are so cool. I especially love the “More Than Just Guacamole” snack. I need to try that!
Rachelle J says
All those snacks look amazing! I love having tuna around for a healthy and filling snack!
Skinny recipes? Yes please. I need them lol! They all look so good and shocker I would eat every one! That’s hard to do I’m so super picky! But all of these look great!
Those are great recipes using crackers that I would never have thought to use that way! Very creative and looks delicious!
winifred jac says
another ritz post! so exciting. i have been having avocado toast lately (yum-o) so i love the idea of putting it on a cracker. cheese and crackers is one of my all time fav snacks.
Marcie W. says
BIG Ritz lover here and all of your snack suggestions are totally up my alley! I usually enjoy mine with some sharp cheddar or peanut butter.
These look so good. I love putting salmon and cream cheese on bagels, so I bet on the Ritz it’s great as well! And avocados, I could eat them for days!
All my favorite combos!
Yona Williams says
Your cucumber avocado creation looks really tasty! I would eat that in a heartbeat. I love that Ritz has so many different options to consider. My favorite is the Original…and the Garlic one they have – those are really good!
Catherine S says
These all sound really good. I like to have Ritz with cheese and summer sausage.
I love the idea of filing a pepper with tuna salad and serving it like a dip bowl. These are all great ideas, I love your recipes.

Nina Say says
I have always loved how many endless snack variations we can make with Ritz. It makes it pretty much the best snacking tool ever.
My husband would agree!
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
So many tasty foods, so little time! Can I just have them all now?
Tuna salad in peppers in genius Definitely some powering snacks
Rosa @ Cat Lady Confidential says
I’m always looking for healthy snack options and these 4 are great! I must try the salmon snack ASAP.
I looooooove smoked salmon.
Ann Bacciaglia says
These are great snack ideas. I will have to try the tuna and crackers.
Those all look incredible. I need to make a batch of tuna for those days where it’s just me home during the day. I forget to have lunch a lot!
Peanut butter and Ritz! That’s like the classic way to enjoy them, and it’s so good!
Marina John says
Thank you soo much for these recipes! I’m always looking for healthy things to feed my snacking addiction.
I like the idea of putting the tuna salad in a pepper. Very creative.
I’ve been a huge fan of RItz crackers since I was a little girl.
Me too. I have this bad habit of licking the tops. LOL
Yummy! The time salad looks so good! Love the idea of eating it on Ritz crackers!
Carly Anderson (@lipglosscrayons) says
YUM, I just picked up a box of Ritz today! Totally going to try that guac recipe!
I would try the More Than Just Salmon, honestly I am not sure I have ever eaten salmon .ever. Not that I wouldn’t eat it, I do like seafood, just never had it. Thanks for an idea on how I can finally try it out!
Shannon Gurnee says
I love snacking on Ritz Crackers! You can do all kinds of things with them! I haven’t tried them with salmon before though.
Jessica B Woods says
I know it’s all about the cracker, but that bell pepper bowl is seriously awesome. And simple!
I’m a Ritz junkie, but trying to watch the carbs. They need to invent carb-free Ritz that still taste the same…I’d live on them!
I am all for that low carb version too! I am making my way back to my low carb roots. My guts will love me more.
