This might look like an ordinary corn dish, but oh no…..this stuff is addictive.I can not take credit, my aunt Cathy made this and brought it to a lunch me and some of my family had last Saturday (yes there was social distancing and there were only 5 of us…. no men were allowed just us girls). I have to admit, when she mentioned that she brought corn salad to go along with our very tasty chicken salad ( yes, it was a salad kind of luncheon, and not the leafy kind. ) I do like corn so I knew this should be good. But it’s just corn right? wrong! This also has chili cheese Fritos. Yes, Fritos. Don’t scroll away….seriously, it’s that good. I could have just plopped down, spoon in hand and eaten the whole bowl of this stuff. The corn chips add a nice crunch and saltiness, where as the mayo adds just a touch of creaminess to it and a little bite from the onion….. so good.
This can be made a head of time, but do not add the Fritos until it is time to serve or it can become soggy.
Here’s what you need:
*2 cans whole kernel corn ( 1 can regular corn and 1 can sweet corn)
*2 C. grated Cheddar cheese
*1 C. mayonnaise
*1 C. green bell pepper, chopped
*1/2 C. red onion, finely chopped
*1 (10.5 ounce) nag of coarsely crushed Chili-Cheese corn chips.
Mix first 5 ingredients and chill. Stir in corn chips just before serving.
