Do you have a salty addiction?  I’d have to say I’m more of a sweet tooth myself, but when it comes to Fritos, I have a weakness.  So, you can imagine my excitement when I saw this recipe for a Heathly Homemade Frito!  Check out this great recipe, I can’t wait to try it myself.  Not only saving my pocketbook, but maybe a few calories and preservatives as well.

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup organic, non-GMO yellow cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 450F degrees.

2. Combine cornmeal and salt in a mixing bowl. Pour in 1 cup of boiling water and stir, add olive oil. Add remaining 3/4 cup boiling water, while stirring constantly.

3. Drop mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls onto a well-greased baking sheet and press each one with the bottom of a glass. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes approximately 3 dozen chips.

Oh, and today, January 29th, is National Corn Chip Day—-so cheers to you!
