From my 1954 Frito Kid's Party Ideas for Kiddies booklet I present June's Party theme: Cowboy Party!
Maybe Frito Kid's birthday is in June because this one is right up his tumbleweeded alley!
This party includes something new, a recipe for Frito Burgers (given below).
Yeehaw! Sody pop in a tin cup, Frito-fied burgers, and panning for chips of gold!
So what did I do differently from the recipe, because you know I have to put in my own little tweaks. I used ground turkey to cut calories, only it does have the tendency to be a bit bland. I also used spicy ketchup in place of tomato juice. I added some Tony's seasoning and some dehydrated onion to the meat before pan frying. The grocery store was out of the bakery slider buns I had requested and subbed Hawaiian sweet rolls instead, which I had my doubts about. I'm not a fan of sweet stuff on savory...only savory/salty on sweet. I thought the burgers where surprisingly good even with the slightly sweet rolls. All of that added salt from the corn chips helped the blandness, but I think the real flavor was courteous of the ketchup.
That's a trick I will hold onto for the future. The corn chips didn't add any crunch since they are mixed in with the moist meat and they kinda sogged out by the end of frying, but not in a bad way, just melded together.
Now don't be a yellow bellied varmint! Treat your favorite cowpokes to some Frito grub from your own chuckwagon!
And till next time, Happy Trails Partners!
