Frito Salad

This recipe is a summer picnic favorite of mine! I did 1/2 the recipe for our get-together.

4 cans red or pinto beans (or a combo), drained & rinsed
1 grn. pepper, chopped
2-3 grn. onions, sliced
3 Roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
1 c. grated cheddar cheese
12"ish" oz. bottle Catalina or French dressing*
1 reg. size bag Fritos or Fritos Scoops

Combine all ingre. except for chips. You can make it the day before & refrigerate until ready to serve. At serving time, mix in chips. It will keep fresh for about 1 1/2 hours or you can just let everyone add their own chips. :)

*For recipe group I strayed from my usual Kraft Catalina dressing & went with Brianna's brand Zesty French dressing which had A LOT less sodium & tasted fresher to me.

  1. I really loved this, even the feaux fritos... I might have to go to SUn harvest and get me some! Or like a stock of some!! (oh yeah, sorry the pic is a bit hard to see, the color of the beans and tomatoes blends with the cloth, if I make it at home I'll try and take another picture!)
