Very good recipe. I used the chili-cheese Fritos which seemed to give the dish a flavor similar to other baked Frito pies I have made. In other words, very tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the ground beef with the onions and garlic.
  2. When all the pink is out of the meat add the seasoning mix, water, cream cheese, corn, 1/2 the olives and Taco sauce.
  3. Let this simmer for 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Crush the Fritos chips (I used the chili flavored ones, but plain will work fine).
  5. In an 8x12 casserole dish, layer 1/2 of the Fritos, then 1/2 the meat filling, and then 1/2 the cheese (regular cheddar will work also, I just prefer the combined cheese flavors).
  6. Repeat the layers and top with the remaining olives.
  7. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes, or until it is warmed completely and the cheese is melted.
  8. To serve, you can top with shredded lettuce, the diced green onions (tops included), diced tomatoes and a shot of the sour cream.
