Disclosure: This is a sponsored post as a participant in the Walmart Moms Program.frito lay do us a flavor
A few months ago I had the opportunity to not only visit Frito-Lay USA Headquarters but also I was invited for a super exciting opportunity as a Wal-Mart Mom! As you may have seen me share already on our social channels, The Do Us A Flavor contest is back! I had the chance to share my own flavor for chips to inspire you and others to submit your own chip flavor!

I was so excited to enter The Frito-Lay Flavor Kitchen because the cameras were already set and my hair and make-up were done! We had a quick chat with one of the Chef’s who works on helping to create these delicious chip flavors we love, Chef Jody. The whole team was amazing and made our experience one to remember!
As I got ready to shoot I got a little nervous but I was ready to share one of my husband’s favorite food recipes. This recipe also happens to be authentic to where he’s from Newark, NJ.

You know, living in NJ has allowed me to try new things and even adapt better to the state since moving away from everything I’ve ever known in California. The hubs did well when he took me on our first visit to eat authentic Italian-Style Hotdogs. I fell in love with them not only because they’re delicious but because they are a piece of what the hubs grew up eating. The flavors, the way you build, and the way eat an Italian-style hot dog is one of a kind. Soon NJ became home and our kids love them just as much. This is home now.

So I am so excited to share my video for Italian-Style Hotdogs:
