    riffraff's Note:

    Emaw is my Momma and this is her recipe. She is very specific in her instructions and she guarantees (if you do what she says, lol) a family pleasing dish. Great flavor and great on a cold night.

      Easy dinner, I reduced the water a bit but the fritos were still a bit too mushy. However, my family still ate it up! Next time I will reduce the water a bit more and cutback on the cooking time a few minutes.

      I love frito pie so I decided to try it Emaw's way. It was okay. I prefer not baking as long so that the fritos still stay kinda crunchy. Making it this way, the fritos get very mushy and all I could think of was baby food. I'm sorry riff but it just didn't go over well here. Dan wouldn't even eat the leftovers. I think this is one of those times that I should just stick to what I know I like.
