You are going to be so surprised with today’s salad recipe.  It may sound a little strange, but it is so delicious!  I had this chili cheese frito salad at a potluck dinner with the women in my church.

The girl who brought was telling me how easy it was to make and what was in it.  I couldn’t believe the ingredients: canned corn, mayo, chili cheese fritos, cheese, peppers, and onions.  So easy and OHHHH SOOO GOOOOD!

The salad gets all the flavor from the seasoning on the Fritos.  So I came home and googled the recipe. I found different variations.  From those, I then created my own version based on what I was told was in the salad and the recipes I found in my search. I must say that I am not a huge fan of canned corn but totally don’t even care about that because this chili cheese Frito salad tastes that good.

  • Just before serving mix in the fritos. I save about a handful to sprinkle on the top. I also add a little tried parsley for color. Enjoy and eat it all because it's not good as leftover. The fritos get too soggy.

  9. Just made this last night for a party and it was a hit! We didn’t incorporate the chips into the salad and instead put them in a bowl next to it and let everyone put as many chips as they wanted onto their serving of the corn salad. My thought was that we could save the leftover without having soggy chips but it turned out to be so good that there weren’t any leftovers to save! It was a great success and everyone LOVED and RAVED about it! Thanks for the recipe!
