Tastes from Home with Frito-Lay Recipe and #FritoFlavors

Frito-Lays is reminding everyone of the home tastes they love with their new Lay’s Regional Flavors Frito-Lays Chips! Each of the seven new flavors have been inspired by the flavors of the different regions of America.  Try one of these new flavors today and see if it reminds you of home!

Regional Flavors Frito Lay

  •  Lay’s Honey Mustard — Northeastern U.S.
  •  Lay’s Creamy Garden Ranch — Midwestern U.S.
  •  Lay’s Balsamic Sweet Onion –Northwestern U.S.
  •  Lay’s Chipotle Ranch — Southwestern U.S.
  •  Lay’s Cajun Herb & Spice — Southeastern U.S.
  • Garden Tomato Basil — Available everywhere
  • Tangy Carolina BBQ — Available everywhere

I cannot wait to try the Garden Tomato Basil and the Balsamic Sweet Onions flavors, yum! They’re especially appealing since the Lay’s Regional Flavored potato chips have 0 grams of trans fat per serving, are lower in sodium and are made with all-natural ingredients.

I was excited when Lay’s invited me to share a recipe that reminds me of home with them for a chance to win a trip to the Frito-Lay headquarters in Plano, Texas, cash prize, or a bunch of chips  in the Tastes from Home with Frito-Lay recipe contest! The first thought that came to mind was a recipe with apples. The tree in our front yard is bursting with red apples and I know that my favorite cooler-weather season, Fall, is just around the corner. Anything with apples in it always reminds me of home but this apple crisp is one of the tastiest comfort foods I could think of. I added a few surprises to it and I’ve found that this is one of the yummiest crisp toppings after lots of experimenting!

    I’m thinking that the Chipotle Ranch is right up my Snacking Alley…and its not because I am in Cali either, the region it represents.haha. You know they all sound pretty good..I might have to take a Culinary “Road Trip” and cover the entire United States if you know what I mean haha. Regional Smegional..I always wanted to explore new territories!
