Serving Up {Entree}: Frito Mess

This meal is not really attractive to look at.  It isn't even healthy.  But it comes together in less than 5 minutes, my kids LOVE it, and when we are in the doldrums of summers and mom wants something quick that does not require the oven to be turned on...well this just hits the spot.  The original recipe did not call for ground beef, but by adding it I feel like it makes the dish into more of a meal.  Combine with some fresh fruit and you are set for a cool, light summer meal.  

One Year Ago: Frosted Banana Bars
                        Creamy Lemon Pasta


2 cans corn, drained
5 green onions, sliced
1 bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained***
1 bag chili cheese fritos

Toss all of the ingredients, except fritos, together in a large bowl and stir until well combined and thoroughly coated with mayo.
Just before serving, add the bag of chili cheese fritos and toss to combine.

*** The original recipe did not call for beef, so feel free to leave it out.  I add it so that I can call this meal dinner without any guilt :)
