"So this is the strangest recipe I've ever tried. They are good as well as easy to make, but too sweet for me (hence the 3 stars). Other people seem to like them though. I did follow the reviewer's suggestion to crush the chips a bit first & I did that. This would go well at a potluck or a Superbowl party. The sweetness factor makes them a no for me, though."

"These are sweet and salty. Loved them and friends loved them too. Only suggestion would be to gently crush the frito chips slightly. They will cut better and bite better! Yum! easy - easy and makes a lot."
