Frito Salad

 

Frito Salad loaded so much flavor and always a favorite at BBQ's! ohsweetbasil.com

 

Last summer we attended our nephew’s birthday party which was so fun, and full of more mosquitoes than I have ever witnessed. They ate us alive and the men had to hurry off to the closest stores to buy up all of the bug spray we could. Since then I’ve decided that mosquitoes are of the devil. Is there any purpose other than to destroy us? Thankfully they did not get the frito salad.
