Happy Corn Chip Day!

Happy Corn Chip Day? Is there anything better than delicious corn chips? Plain, BBQ, chili cheese … oh yum.

Fritos Corn Chips

The best use of corn chips ever made be in walking tacos.

You Need:

  • Small bag of Fritos corn chips (or your favorites)
  • Taco meat or chili
  • Cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream

Make ‘Em:

Cut open the bag of corn chips along the long side. Spoon in the meat or chili, cheese, lettuce, salsa, and sour cream.


Mix up the ingredients and try pulled pork with honey BBQ corn chips. Or use the chili cheese chips version instead of plain. Or try chicken fajita meat with peppers and onions. Oh the variations are endless!

And if you’ll excuse me, I’m on my way to the store to pick up the ingredients to make these!

Rudy’s Recipe: Campfire Banana Boat Foster

You Need:

  • 1 large banana, unpeeled
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Make It:

  1. Slice an unpeeled banana lengthwise without cutting all the way through the top or bottom of the peel. Gently open it so it’s like a boat, then fill with the brown sugar and cinnamon, pressing them into the flesh without squishing. Wrap the banana tightly in foil.
  2. Cook in the coals of the campfire, away from any active flames, for about 10 minutes. Serve hot … maybe with vanilla ice cream. :-p
