The National Mexican-American Anti-Defamation Committee was a lobbying group which pushed Frito-Lay to get rid of the Frito Bandito in the early 1970s. It was most active from 1968 to 1971.

Its head, Dominigo "Nick" Reyes, attacked Jews for their control of the entertainment industry.[1] He also wrote and published a pamphlet called Chicanos and the mass media with Armando Rendon.

In 1975 it was sued by the Anti-Defamation League for appropriating their name, but the case was rejected by the courts.[2]
