Not the usual corn salad, but one with a Mexican flavor, can be made into a dip also.


Or for another variation, substitute 1 can regular corn, drained and 1 can shoe peg corn drained for the 2 cans Mexi corn


In a bowl mix the corn, mayo, onion and cheese. Just before serving, top with slightly crushed chili corn chips (Fritos). I like to put a bowl of the chips on for those who like more in their salad.


Use this same recipe for a delicious dip just put it your food processor or blender, without the chips, for a few seconds and serve with the larger Fritos Scoops. This salad or dip keeps well and only gets better the next day. I warn you I would double the recipe if taking it somewhere and take the recipe with you if you share recipes.

Follow the same directions if you don't want the Mexican flavor and use the 1 can of regular and 1 can of shoe peg corn drained. You might want to add some seasonings such as garlic or dill, I found it a little mild for my taste.
