Once in a while something literally hijacks my brain at fork point, and takes over until I do exactly what it says!  Each and every time that “something” is food..lol!

This time, the accused ‘hijacker’ are those crunchy, salty, and SO addicting Fritos!  I tried to resist, put up a fight, but I didn’t stand a chance!  I just had to take that Corny chip and turn it into a show-stopping appetizer/snack-thingy!

~And here we are!

Not only are these Frito Fritters going to become your most requested party treat, you will find yourself actually craving them, All. The. Time~!  There’s nothing that these crunchy, corny, salty, cheesy bites won’t do for you and your taste buds!  Make a HUGE batch of them and watch everyone start to grab gather.

PS..when they’re frying up, the smell in your kitchen will hypnotize you!  Fried Fritos should totally be a candle!  🙂

What you’ll need for approx. 14 Fritters:

1 cup raw Corn Kernels

1/2 cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar

1/2 cup Corn Meal

1/2 cup coarsely crushed Fritos  (by hand)

1/4 cup Flour

3/4 cup Milk

3/4 tsp. Baking Powder

3/4 tsp. of each..Salt & Pepper

Oil for frying..I used Canola


In a medium bowl combine all of the above ingredients (except for the Oil)…

Mix it very well so the liquid can be absorbed and create a batter…

By hand, roll the Batter into 1″ balls…

Fry them in about 2″ of Oil, a few at a time, until they’re golden on all sides…

Add another sprinkle of Salt if you’d like, while they’re warm.  It would be a crime to not eat one RIGHT now…

Then, do the right thing and share…

…and then dig in!  ~Enjoy! 🙂
