#perfectpairing party from frito-lay

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 6:29 PM
As you know the past couple weeks have been very busy. It's nice to just relax and take a breather once and a while especially as a mom of 2 hyper girls.
Earlier today I spent some time with some local Orlando bloggers Lee, Jessica, Becca, Angie, and Tracie and other friends to share in some laughs, gossip and of course good food.

We sorta had a pot luck style party where we each made our favorite dip (or two or three) to share with each other along with some Frito-Lay brand chips like Fritos, Tostitos and Classic Lays!
We love the different types of chips that Frito-Lay makes and honestly Frito-Lay’s snack chips contain less sodium than most people think. For example, a one-ounce serving of Tostitos tortilla chips has less sodium than a cup of plain yogurt!

It was so great to talk to moms and make new friends. We all brought our kids and they had a ball playing together except Kendall who was shy so I had to hold her the whole time. Of course chips and dip isn't the healthiest of lunches so we had some yummy snacks like fruits, veggies, chicken fingers and juice for the kids (and maybe some of the moms, hehe).

With all the different dips there it was hard for me to pick a favorite but I think I liked Jessica's Pico the best! The hit for everyone else was Angie's Corn and Black Bean Salsa (pictured). It was very tasty but I am just not a bean person so I couldn't eat much of it.

I personally brought 3 different types of dips because I just could not choose which one I like better (are we noticing a pattern? I'm really indecisive). I made a Tzatziki (Greek Cucumber Yogurt) dip, a "BLT" dip and a Mango Salsa - perfect for summer! Each were super easy to make and some shared in ingredients so it was easy to make more then one dip.
The biggest hit out of the three was:
Mango Salsa!
To make you will need:
1 mango - diced
1 half red onion - diced
1/2 cucumber - diced
2 Tbls lime juice
1/2 jalapeno - removed the seeds and ribs then dice
handful of cilantro - chopped
*add 1 Tbls lemon juice if you like

Mix all the ingredients together, chill for at least 1 hour and devourer, preferably using Tostitos Scoopable chips!

Here is my other dip that is now a household favorite with the hubby and Makenna: I called it a BLT! :) It had sun dried tomatoes, crisp bacon and it was housed in a lettuce bowl!

Jessica - TheUnemployedMom, Becca - MamaBBlog, Tracie - FromTracie, Lee-  MySentimentExactLee, Angie -WholeLotOfNothing.Net, and me!

So what's your favorite summer time dip? Whatever it is, just make sure you are using Frito-Lay's chips!

This is a sponsored post. Frito-Lay and TheMotherhood provided me with chips and ingredients to make this recipe and I was compensated for my time. Thoughts are my own.

Your mango salsa was SO good! You are a superwoman, making three yummy dips like that.

It was great to meet you!

This was a REALLY GOOD TIME! Your dips were great in those cute chip and dip bowls too! Which are sitting on my counter top. You need to come over and get them and maybe we'll swim or something.
