I have been making this delicious and easy salad since my 5 boys were young (they are grown now so I suppose this makes me old). Of course, it has Fritos and chili so they loved it. I serve it with fresh fruit, such as cantaloupe or grapes, french bread or rolls and there is dinner! It is good any season of the year but especially nice for a hot day--no need to heat the stove up as I just microwave the chili before serving.
