  • measuring spoons


  • 1 can whole kernel corn drained

  • Stir to combine well.
  • Garnish with more Fritos if desired.


NOTE: I always use 3 times the recipe above, and use 3 different colored bell peppers, green is the least favorite choice, but I will use it when I can’t find the other colors.
NOTE: This recipe is also terrific served as a dip with Fritos.
