What’s in Fritos Corn Salad?

How to Make Frito Corn Salad
- In a bowl, mix together the corn, diced red pepper, yellow pepper, onion, mayonnaise, cheese and taco seasoning.
- Add the Frito chips just before serving and enjoy.
How to Store Frito Salad
Store your Frito salad in a covered bowl in the fridge. If making your salad in advance, don’t add the chips until just before you’re ready to eat. This prevents them from getting soggy.
How long will Corn Salad Last?
Without the chips, your corn salad will last up to 3 days well covered in the fridge. With the chips it’s a matter of hours unless you like soggy and chewy chips. Having the chips fresh and crisp really adds to the texture of the dish though.
What flavor of Frito Chip is best?
The flavor of Frito chip that you choose is totally up to your own personal preference. You can use Plain, BBQ, or even Chili flavored Fritos.
Honestly, I like the sweetness of the BBQ but the Chili flavor is also excellent. For the less adventurous, plain Fritos work great with this recipe.
Add Frito Corn Chips right before serving so they don't get to soft.
Don't hesitate to make this easy Frito Salad recipe and double it. It's delicious and will be gone before you know it.
Don't have all the ingredients, that's okay! Substitute any color bell pepper for what you have. It's okay to use less too. This is really a salad that comes together with all these fresh ingredients!
