The Tastes from Home with Frito-Lay Recipe & Giveaway! #FritoFlavors


One of my favorite recipes that reminds me of home is The Dykstra's Thick & Chunky Salsa Dip Recipe.  I'm from the Midwest Region.  While growing up, my family & I made this recipe as a side dish for family gatherings (especially during the Pro-Football season) or for movie nights at home.  I love the Dykstra's Thick & Chunky Salsa Dip Recipe because it's tasteful, simple to make and the aroma reminds me of the fun times I had growing up with my siblings.  


Dykstra's Thick & Chunky Salsa Dip Recipe

Serving size: 4-6
Prep time:  approximately 5 minutes
Cook time:  approximately 30 minutes



Ingredients:
1 lb. of ground beef
1 (16 oz.) jar of Thick & Chunky Salsa
1 (12 oz.) bag of Taco Seasoning Shredded Cheese
1 bag of TOSTITOS SCOOPS! Tortilla Chips
Creamy Ranch Dressing (topping)

Directions:
Brown the ground beef in a frying pan. Then drain grease.  On low heat, add the Thick & Chunky Salsa and  the Taco Seasoning Shredded Cheese to the ground beef. Cover and stir frequently until well blended.  Serve with the Tostitos SCOOPS! Tortilla Chips.  Add Creamy Ranch Dressing as a topping (optional).


Note:  You can add more or less cheese if you choose to.  And you can also add salt & pepper to the ground beef while browning, to give it taste.

 These chips were inspired by popular American regional cuisine and include: 

1.    Northeastern U.S. – Lay’s Honey Mustard
2.    Midwestern U.S. – Lay’s Creamy Garden Ranch
3.    Northwestern U.S. – Lay’s Balsamic Sweet Onion
4.    Southwestern U.S. – Lay’s Chipotle Ranch
5.    Southeastern U.S. – Lay’s Cajun Herb & Spice
 
 All of the Lay's Regional Flavored potato chips are made with all natural ingredients and cooked in healthier oils, like corn and sunflower oils, which contain 80% or more of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat - the "good fats." They also contain 0 grams of trans fats per serving! There’s also less sodium in them than you might think – a 1-oz serving of our Lay’s Regional Flavored potato chips contains less salt than a plain bagel!  

The 2 Lay’s Regional Flavors that I would love to try are the Tangy Carolina BBQ and the  Honey Mustard!
