Frito Corn Salad

I thought I had better take a break from trying to change the world and post a recipe. My family all raved about this one over the 4th. Drew loved it, so I have to post it so his friends can make it for him....
It seriously doesn't get much easier than this. I added cubed ham to make it a meal and a dash of cayenne pepper to jazz it up a bit. This recipe is very forgiving so add an extra can of corn, a little more of this and that, and it is easy to stretch. A note of caution, definitely best the first day due to soggy chips. So if you want to keep it over a few days, add the chips as you go! Enjoy!

    1. I can attest to the fact that it is delicious; I thought the chili dorito chips would be too much, but it was delicious!
