Hi, is everyone dreaming of summer food?!

I’ve had my windows open every day for the last week or so. It’s 70 degrees which means it’s shorts and flipflops weather in central Texas! I am ready to buy my summer pass to the pool and spend my every day in the sun.

I also cannot wait to grill everything and make pasta salads and no bake cheesecakes and all the yummy food that I associate with summer. 

Today I have one of my alltime favorite summer side dishes. I know we’ve talked at length about my love of Fritos so this should come as no surprise. (If you love Fritos as much as I do, try my Tex Mex Sloppy Joes with Fritos on top!) 

It takes just minutes to put together and it is always a hit. Take it to barbecues, potlucks, serve it as a side for dinner. I promise everyone will love it. 

No, it’s not low calorie. It’s fine.
