School is letting out and summer is officially underway. Here are some summer entertaining tips from Frito-Lay, along with two salsa recipes. You’ll find more recipes for salsa and more on the Frito-Lay site. Be sure to stick around until the end for a fun giveaway!
Summer Entertaining Tips:
Keep Your Cool – When it’s hot outside, the last place you want to be is in a kitchen with the oven blazing! Cool down with appetizers and snacks made from fresh fruits and vegetables and paired with unique, easy-to-make sides, like the Summer Salsa recipe below. In this dip, fresh tomatoes, garlic, limes, red onion and cilantro spice up canned corn, so you can spend more time enjoying it, not making it!
Keep it Simple – A party isn’t a party without chips and dip, but not all chips are created equal. For example, some of Frito-Lay’s most popular snacks, such as Tostitos Scoops! tortilla chips and Lay’s Classic potato chips are made with only three simple ingredients: Potatoes or corn, healthier oils and salt – that’s it! Use your favorite chips as a vehicle to scoop up extra nutrition by pairing them with dips made with fruits and vegetables.
Keep It Fun – Cut down on the time you spend in the kitchen by hosting a potluck, a great way to mingle with guests and sample the yummy snacks and appetizers they bring! Give a traditional potluck a modern twist by asking guests to share their recipes before they arrive. As guests leave the party, provide them with a festive printout of all the recipes so they can recreate the tasty dishes at home.
