Frito Lay Party Pack Giveaway – NOW CLOSED

Congrats to the winner, whistlersmother10@

While I try to give my kids a balanced diet of fresh produce, lean meats, and whole grains, I will confess that we like chips and snacks with the best of them. Especially on game days. In fact, I recently developed my own version of French Onion Dip — from scratch! No little packets of soup mix. FishPapa was shocked and amazed. It’s his favorite dip besides salsa.

{It’s always fun to impress my husband.}

Chips and dips don’t have to be “junk food.” This past fall my readers came up with some great “Better For You” Tailgate Recipes that would be great to resurrect this winter. And while, yes, sometimes, they are “junk food” after all, chips and dips are definitely part of our party food lineup. The next few weeks are time for great celebration: The Incarnation, family get togethers, football games, and reunions with old friends, just to name a few.

Frito-Lay would like to help you prepare for your next holiday party by offering a gift basket assortment of Frito-Lay products, a decorative serving bowl and a guide to entertaining guests during the holidays.

One winner will be selected at random on Sunday night at 8:01 pm PST. Want a chance to win?

Simply leave a comment telling us your favorite party dish. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you via email. I’ll need your address first thing Monday morning.

I hope you win!

Disclosure: The FishFam received the party pack pictured, complements of Frito-Lay.

  1. I'm a sucker for guacamole with tortilla chips. I can't get enough of it.

  2. I found a wonderful recipe this summer for spinach/salsa/Monterey Jack/cream cheese dip. My husband and extended family went NUTS over the stuff, and if I make a bowl, it's gone in no time – and even my picky eater nephews love it! :-)

  3. My sister makes a chicken cheese ball that is divine. If she shows up without it, she has to go back and make some. (Not really, but we really love it.) :)

  4. I love the whole salsa/velveeta mix with tortilla chips.

  6. Love stuffed mushrooms.

  7. I love 7 layer dip or good ole Guacamole!
    Another favorite is Veggie Pizza (you can also change this up a bit by substituting ranch seasoning for the dill) http://www.pillsbury.com/recipes/showrecipe.aspx?rid=9897

  8. It's a tie between Lil' Smokies in BBQ sauce and Spinach & Artichoke Dip with tortilla chips. Mmmm…now I'm hungry.

  11. definitely the thing I bring most is dessert of some sort….I love baking and it's rare that I bring the same thing. But I've realized recently that when I need to feed a crowd dessert, I often turn to pie. :)

    It has cream cheese, shredded cheese, wo sauce and onions.

    Easy and fairly inexpensive!

    Last time I made it I didn't have crackers so I made challah bread for it and everyone LOVED it!

    By the way, hubby was looking over my shoulder at your post, and he thinks it's a huge tease that you mentionned your french onion dip recipe without actually posting it!

  28. UnfinishedMom says:

    My favorite party dish is Crab Dip. I'm from Maryland, so it's kind of a must-do thing. But, on a frugal budget – it doesn't happen but about once/year!

  38. It would have to be queso with taco meat and chips. Yum!

  39. One of our favotites is meatballs in the crockpot. I made this last night for a homeschool party and the sauce I used was cranberry sauce which I melted in the microwave and layered with the meatballs. It turned really good and was a sweeter sauce.
