Awesome! I crumbled the Fritos as suggested, so it wasn't soggy. It was defitiley a different way to prepare a burger. Interesting blend of flavors.
I thought they were tasty! I crumbled my fritos so they didn't get soggy. Great taste and something different!

Mistake in "Ingredients": So sorry, I accidentally wrote "browned ground beef" in the ingredients section. The patties are to be formed with "raw" ground beef and cornchips---not browned.
