Frito Salad

I wanted to try something new but not too complicated. I found this recipe from, I think, a recipe swap with some of the girls at church. I can't even remember who I got it from.

It was good and simple. We had Hotdogs and Frito Salad one night for supper and even Hannah ate it up (most of it - she picks the fritos out and eats those).

2 cans of whole kernel corn, drained
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
6 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
10 oz bag of chili cheese fritos
Mix and serve immediately

How can you go wrong with chili cheese fritos?? You can't!!

Here are my suggestions.
First, I could only find a 9 3/4 oz bag of chili cheese fritos and that worked fine
Second, this makes a lot and it is not that great the next day because the fritos are not crunchy anymore. If you have a small family then you may want to half the recipe. OR fix it when you are having friends over or going to a covered dish lunch after worship.
Third, I used my Chop Wizard for the pepper and onion and it made it a very quick recipe!

This is Yummy!! AND Easy!!! If you try it, let me know what you think.
