FRITO CORN SALAD

I made this Frito Corn Salad years ago but couldn’t bring myself to post it because I felt like I would get hate mail.

I get angry emails for using a can of condensed soup so making a “salad” out of Fritos – yeah, I didn’t think that would go over to well.

But guess what? It’s good and if you’re not a fan, I’ll have a healthy recipe for you tomorrow. Or you can try this Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Salad.

Oh wait. Maybe next week? Umm…nevermind. Maybe this isn’t the site for you. Now that we’ve cleared the air, let’s get to the Frito Corn Salad.

Frito Corn Salad - this is your game day recipe. Corn, Fritos, peppers, and onion. So good!

This salad is pretty simple: corn, peppers, onion, and mayo. I used canned corn here but you could definitely used frozen corn thawed or fresh. If you want to add some color use red and green pepper.

It’s very important to not add the crushed Fritos until right before serving because you want them nice and crunchy. Eat this with a spoon or use it as a dip!
