Tips + Storing Info
Any kind of corn works (fresh, canned or frozen) will work in this recipe. If you use frozen corn, let it to thaw first in a colander to allow any excess moisture to shed. I also think that the kernels from grilled corn on the cob would be delicious.
For mix ins, we stuck with bell peppers and Colby Jack cheese, but you can easily change those or add to them. Sliced jalapenos, diced onions and olives would all be good options.
You can also change up the type of cheese to Pepper Jack, Cheddar or Mexican cheese.
STORE leftovers, covered, in the fridge for 2-3 days. The fritos will get soggy, but you can just add a few fresh ones for more crunch.
