  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 cups crushed FRITOS® Originals
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place a cooling rack inside a rimmed baking sheet and set aside.
