Frito-Lay Tailgate Party Giveaway  

Sunday, October 4, 2009

Football season is finally here...and everyone knows that game day just isn’t complete without the ultimate tailgating party! Whether it’s with a group of friends huddled outside the stadium or the family gathered around the TV in the den, tasty food and snacks are essential to a "winning" tailgating experience.

Tailgating for most of us conjures images of greasy pizza and saucy wings. With a little vision and planning, you can score big by offering a menu that's just as delicious but a bit better for you.

Fewer penalties, better tailgating...

We know few people go to tailgate parties for the veggies – it’s definitely a time to indulge and enjoy. But it doesn’t have to be a total eating catastrophe. At Frito-Lay, our portion control sizes make it easy to enjoy all your favorite treats – in moderation. And simple "tricks" like offering dips made with reduced-fat sour cream or that offer positive nutrition like salsa or guacamole, cooking with lean turkey meat and fat-free refried beans can cut hundreds of calories off your meals and still taste great for you and your hungry fans.

Better-For-You Tailgate Recipe Contest

I'm looking for a new recipe to use at my Pittsburgh Steelers football parties using Frito-Lay products. It can be Frito-Lay Pie, Dip for Tostitos, etc.

Win It!

The person who submits the best recipe (judged on taste and better-for-you ingredients) will win the items in the photo above: better-for-you Frito-Lay products, a gift card for purchasing your ingredients and a stylish dish to serve your delicious recipes.

Please leave a comment with your favorite recipe using Frito-Lay products. The giveaway will end on October 18th at midnight and will be emailed and announced here in a new post on October 19th.

Thanks for stopping by, and Good Luck!

    This is very quick and easy:

    1 pound ground meat/turkey
    1 can of chili (19 ounce)
    1 cup grated cheese
    1 small onion, chopped
    3 cups fritos

    Brown and drain meat. Then mix everything together and pour into casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. (My family doesn't like beans, so we use beanless chili)

    Awesome giveaway! When I was little we would get the little bags of fritos and put taco meat, lettuce, cheese, etc in the bags and then crunch it up and eat it with a fork from the bag and i loved it! Now I like to do it with chili cheese fritos or doritos in a bowl.

    7 layer Frito Chili Pie

    I make Chili - ground beef, spices, onions, tomatoes and tomato paste. Or you can use jar or canned chili

    I then take fritos and crush them and add them to the bottom of the casserole dish as a crust. I then start layering the chili, sour cream, cheese, jalpenos, guacamole, black olives and then more crushed fritos.

    Of course you can use whatever toppings you like and even make more layers. It's really tasty and it can be served as is or with chips.

    Such a great giveaway. Thanks. Here is one of my favorites and it's healthy. I always called it dad's garden salad but you could rename it to Steeler's Salad ;)

    1 medium cucumber, finely chopped
    1 (4 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
    1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
    1 bunch green onions, finely chopped
    1 large tomato, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    3/4 cup Catalina salad dressing
    1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
    1 1/2 cups Fritos
    In a large bowl, combine the tomato, green pepper, cucumber, black olives, corn, and green onions. Pour the Catalina dressing over, and toss to coat. Stir in the cheese and corn chips just before serving.

    I brown 1/2 lb lean ground beef. Add 1 can sodium free tomatoes and 2 can of rinsed kidney beans. I add 1/2(I have a 10 year old sensitive to spicy so you can add more)a jalapeno and low sodium chili seasoning and continue to cook.

    I garnish with low fat cheese and fat free sour cream and we use this as a dip for fritos.

    Basically by reducing the meat and increasing the veggie as well as using low fat and no fat dairy you improve the nutritional value.
