A great quick meal that was a favorite in my family when I was growing up and that my kids love too! Recipe has been adjusted to 2 cans of chili as suggested by reviewers. I normally use one and don't use the entire bag of fritos. You can adjust the chili to frito ratio to your taste. More chili is always good.
This is a recipe that friends ask me to make often for get togethers, birthday dinners, etc. You can serve it as a salad by putting it on top of shredded lettuce and garnishing with tomato slices or serve it as a dip with tortilla chips. I listed Haas avocadoes in the recipe, but any variety works fine.
One of My grandma's many wonderful recipes. This is a traditional holiday dish in our family. It is also a great recipe for a cookout or covered dish supper. It is a little different from the other pea salad recipes that are posted.
For best flavor make this recipe the night before serving or several hours ahead and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Similar to Maionese, or Brazilian Potato Salad, this is another favorite dish of mine from Brazil, my husband's home country. My favorite version was served to me 10 years ago at an authentic Brazilian restaurant in Southboro, Massachusetts called Ipanema. I rushed home and came up with this and I think its pretty darn close! This is a newly adopted recipe. I will be trying it soon. :)
