Frito-Lay Summer Entertaining Prize Pack Giveaway – Ends 06/23

Frito-Lay Summer Entertaining Pack

With summer fast approaching, we’ll soon be in the thick of family reunions, graduations, weddings, and all sorts of gatherings. There’s nothing like having a little help with entertaining, so Frito-Lay are offering you tips and recipes for your summer buffet – and one lucky reader will win a Frito-Lay Summer Entertaining Prize Pack to help them simplify their next gathering, so read on!

I recently signed up for the Frito-Lay Fan Program, where you have the opportunity to receive news, offers, and free samples to review. As my welcome into the program, I received a big box over Memorial Day weekend filled with chips, dip, and an insulated bag. I’m a sucker for snacks, so I tore into the chips about 5 seconds after I received them! The package included a bag of Lay’s Classic Potato Chips, a bag of Tostitos Scoops, and a bag of Tostitos Hint of Lime tortilla chips. I’ve been noshing on the classic chips for as long as I can remember, so of course those were a hit! Neither Jai or I had tried the Hint of Lime chips before, but we really enjoyed them. We ate pretty much all the Lime and Classic chips before we even had a chance to buy sour cream to make the dip. :D Fortunately, there were plenty of Tostitos Scoops left, which are made for dipping! The dip packet I received was Garden Onion, and all you do is add it to a tub of sour cream and stir. I love anything onion, so this dip went down well! Perhaps a little too well, since we pretty much ate all the chips and dip before the weekend was over! ;)

Frito-Lay have some fun ideas and recipes for entertaining to share with you:

Summer Entertaining with Frito-Lay

The time is here for summer barbecues, picnics and outdoor parties! Make summer entertaining fun, easy and oh-so-tasty with these party tips and appetizer and snack recipes featuring fruits and veggies:

  • Keep Your Cool – When it’s hot outside, the last place you want to be is in a kitchen with the oven blazing! Cool down with appetizers and snacks made from fruits and veggies, like our easy-to-make Garden Lime Dip — a perfect pairing with snacks like Tostitos® Hint of Lime chips!
  • Keep it Simple – A party isn’t a party without chips and dip, but not all chips are created equal. For example, some of Frito-Lay’s most popular snacks, such as Tostitos Scoops! tortilla chips and Lay’s Classic potato chips are made with only three simple ingredients: potatoes or corn, healthier oils and salt – that’s it! Use your favorite chips as a vehicle to dish up extra nutrition by pairing them with dips made with fruits and vegetables, like our Mango Salsa Chutney.
  • Keep it Fun – Give a traditional potluck a modern twist by asking guests to share their recipes before they arrive. As guests leave the party, provide them with a festive printout of all the recipes so they can recreate the tasty dishes at home.

Giveaway time!

  1. My best party tip is have an outdoor BBQ and have guest bring a home made dessert. Make sure you have water misters set up around the yard. A couple bubble machines, bouncy balloons, and water guns make for a fun party with the kids Oh and dont forget to have a hula hoop contest lol

  2. My favorite tip is to make sure you use citronella candles or torches… I’m in the south and mosquitos are horrible!

  3. My favorite entertaining tip is to always have something for the kids to do when you invite familes over. This gives the adults time to talk amongst themselves.

  4. My favorite summertime tip:buy whatever fresh fruits and veggies are on sale-they are so much cheaper in the Summer and so it’s so easy to cut some up for a quick party tray

  5. My favorite tip is to ask your guests a few days prior to your get-together if anyone has dietary concerns or allergies. Much better to have happy guests with full bellies.

  6. I like to make popsickles out of fruit juice — a cool and healthy treat when kids are visiting.

  7. I just subscribed to your blog using the email address above. Thank you!

  8. For summer get togethers, I love to have fun, fruity drinks. It’s even better when you have them in big, fun glasses!

  9. We keep all our grilling equipment in a separate cabinet in the kitchen. It makes for a fast weeknight dinner when everything is centrally located. I just grab the tray with the tongs and platters for my husband to start grilling the meat. Then I chop and marinate some vegetables and throw them onto the grill and voila in 20 minutes, dinner is ready!


  11. My favorite summertime tip is to have plenty of water activites for the kids when we have get togethers.

  12. Favorite summer entertaining tip is to keep lots of cool refreshments for outdoor activities, and we always have our mister on to help keep our friends cool when we’re entertaining, as well.

  13. My favorite tip is to always make sure you have gas for your grill before people show up.

  14. I always try to have a new fun game for my guests. We all love the challange and we never have the same party twice.

  15. If you’re going to entertain outside, pick up some handheld fans at the dollar store to keep your guests cool :)

  16. My favorite summer entertaining tip is to serve easy to prepare foods. Chips and dip are awesome for this. No one wants to miss the fun by preparing time intensive foods! Thanks for the chance to win!

  17. My only summer entertaining tip is to plan for the weather. If its hot, have a place to cool off. If its rainy, have a place to stay dry. Its suprising how ofter people overlook the simple things like that.

  18. We have Bbqs every weekend and it is so much easier when we have a bring your own dish theres always plenty of food and it dont wipe out your wallet

  19. My favorite entertaining tip for summer is to plan ahead! Buy cups, plates, napkins ahead of time on sale, with coupons, and/or on clearance. Use lots of seasonal fruits and vegetables that you’ve bought inexpensively at the farmer’s market. Start stocking up on non-perishables weeks beforehand when you see a sale on chips and dips. Serve items you can make ahead of time and refrigerate. With these ideas in practice, you have an affordable party that you can enjoy along with your guests!

  20. My favorite summer entertaining tip is to make your own homemade dips – people always appreciate the extra effort. Thank you for the lovely giveaway.
