Paula Deen's Corn Salad

It's Paula Deen Y'all!  So a few months ago I inherited several bags of Fritos after girl's camp was over.  We aren't huge chip snackers so they've just kind of sat there on the top shelf of the pantry taunting me to use them in a recipe! I have a really yummy zucchini salad recipe that uses them but my family won't touch it and it makes more than I could eat.  So I turned to my friend the Internet and found this super yummy Paula Deen salad! (I use the word "salad" loosely) The best part was that it used ingredients I already had on hand!

The actual recipe calls for chili cheese Fritos but since I had the original Fritos to use up I just added some chili powder and cumin to the mix.  I'm going to write out the recipe her way below...just know that adding your own spices is always an option.  Especially if you find yourself with four bags of Fritos to use up and you just can't eat another Frito pie.  Try serving this with grilled hamburgers and your husband will be a happy man!

Paula Deen's Corn Salad
2 cans sweet corn (drained)
1 green bell pepper- chopped (I had a red one so I used that)
1/2 cup onion- chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
2 cups shredded cheddar
1 bag chili cheese fritos coarsely crushed (I used more like 1/2 a bag and let people add more to their serving if they wanted to)

Drain corn.  Chop veggies.  Mix all ingredients (except Fritos) in a large bowl.  Cover and chill for at least 30 min.  Just before serving, mix in chips.

  1. This recipe is definitely a keeper. I knew it had mayonnaise or something like that in it, too. Good stuff.
