DAY # 16 Frito Corn Salad

Still catching up from the holiday.  This is one i tried for Christmas dinner.  My mother-in-law wrote to say that we were in charge of a meat, the crescent rolls, and a vegetable side.  Unfortunately everyone was already bringing all of my "usual sides" so i decided to go with something new.  My sister got married a little over a year ago and at her bridal shower, someone brought a salad that i just couldn't get enough of.  Of course i couldn't remember anything about it except that it had chili cheese fritos in it and that it was AMAZING!  So off i went in search of a frito salad.  I found this pin and was VERY excited because i was about 80% sure that i had finally found the right one.

Here is the recipe with a few changes...

3 (14 oz.) cans of corn, drained well
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 red onion, diced
1 bag grated cheddar cheese
1 1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 (9 1/4 oz) bag of chili cheese fritos

Combine corn, peppers,onion, cheese, and mayo in a bowl.

Place in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Just before serving mix in the fritos.  Enjoy and eat it all because it’s not good as leftover.  The fritos get too soggy.

It was exactly what i was hoping it would be!  Very YUMMY and a hit with the family  :)
