Chili Frito Corn Salad

Alright folks, there two things you need to know about this Chili Frito Corn Salad. First, it is delicious! It is crunchy and a perfect side dish for a gathering. Second, once you add those chips into it, it needs to be eaten right away. You can combine all of the ingredients ahead of time, but just not the chips. Now that we have that squared away, you are set!

Note: If I make this again I am going to use a combination of red and green bell peppers. I think the green would add a little needed color to the dish.

Chili Frito Corn Salad
Makes about 12 servings

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans whole kernel corn, drained
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese 
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 (10½ ounce) bag coarsely crushed Fritos chili cheese corn chips

1. Mix first 5 ingredients and chill. Stir in corn chips just before serving.

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!

Big Crumb Coffee Cake with Rhubarb
