Have you ever been to a Friendsgiving meal? 

A Friendsgiving is a really cool and unique dinner party! The holidays are all about spending time with friends and family and this is a fun way to do just that. You can make the moments together even more memorable by surprising – and delighting – with a progressive dinner party including delicious dishes that use Frito-Lay snacks in new ways, like I have with this recipe. I even got together with Rachel Cooks and Crazy for Crust to put a spin on traditional recipes for a fun-filled #FritoFriendsgiving menu. Check out the delicious dishes we’ve all created!

I made these delicious RUFFLES® Original Potato Chips Crusted Bacon Ranch

Cheese Balls as the ultimate appetizer to get our party started! You can bring friends together too with a progressive dinner party where everyone contributes a different dish. With Frito-Lay snacks, there are endless possibilities for bringing great flavor AND good fun to any meal. If a recipe is made more awesome with Frito-Lay snacks, why keep it to yourself? Share your awesome Frito-Lay recipe creations with good friends this holiday season. RUFFLES Original Potato Chips are our go to party food! They are legendary for snacking and totally satisfying, especially for the guys while the football game is on!

Your favorite Frito-Lay snacks + your favorite recipes = love (a.k.a. the best thing to share with your favorite people).

Time to talk food!
