Super Bowl Crackers

Gail, this is not exactly Mexican but it is a hot recipe around here right now.
Put two sleeves of soda crackers in a large bowl with a lid.
In a pint jar, mix 1 1/3 cup Canola oil, 1 package dry Hidden Valley Dressing mix and 3 tablespoons of red pepper flakes. Shake well to mix.
Pour half of the oil mixture over the crackers.
Stir the crackers gently. Put the lid on the bowl and turn the bowl over every 15 minutes or so. In about an hour the crackers will have absorbed the oil mixture. The crackers are spicy but not oily. I store the crackers in a zip lock bag. The crackers are good with salad, with cheese, or with a dip or just plain with beer or wine. Store the remaining oil mixture in the refrigerator and use it for another batch of crackers.
