Be ready to “Party in a Pinch” with Frito-Lay! Giveaway!

The holidays can be a blur between cooking, cleaning, shopping, wrapping, and getting together.  Just when you think you can’t cram another thing in, you get that last minute call from someone in town who is about to stop by.   When the holidays approach, I try to keep a stash of quick snacks on hand so I am not left hanging when the unexpected guest pops in.  Thank goodness for Frito-Lay!

One of my favorite dips takes almost no time to prepare but is soooo good your guests will think you’ve been cooking all day!


1 stick butter

1 large onion, chopped finely

1 roll garlic cheese, sliced

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 can mushroom stems and pieces, drained

1 frozen block chopped broccoli

Frito-Lay Tostitos, Baked Tostitos, or Fritos Scoops (I like the Scoops best)

Boil broccoli until tender, drain.  Saute onion in butter until clear and tender.  Reduce heat, add garlic cheese, stir until melted.  Fold in soup, mushrooms, and drained broccoli, heat through.  Serve with your favorite Frito-Lay chips!

Your guests will think you went to a lot of trouble but only you will know the secret and come off looking like June Cleaver!  Go ahead, make me proud!

Frito-Lay wants you to be able to pull off the impressive last minute hostess with the mostest stunt as well.  They are sending one Not So Blog aspiring June Cleaver a “Party in a Pinch” gift basket!


Your gift basket will contain an assortment of delicious Frito-Lay products and a guide to entertaining during the holidays, all tucked into a decorative bowl.  This little gem of a book has TONS of great tips and recipe ideas to keep you on your toes when Aunt Edna says she’s “right around the corner!”  ACK!  Can Frito-Lay send a housekeeping fairy too?
