San Antonio-based grocery giant H-E-B has released jalapeño-flavored saltine crackers, injecting slow-burn flavor into the blandest of bland food items, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

The new crackers offer a bright jalapeño flavor and lingering burn, as well as a hint of onion and garlic, the Express-News reports.

The daily offers a slew of possible applications for the new snack — past the obvious one of crumbled atop chili. Those include as using the crackers as a vessel for charcuterie or crushed up into meatloaf, meatballs or the breading for a fried schnitzel.

H-E-B Jalapeño Saltines are available at area stores for $1.58 for an 8-ounce package.
