I have made a recipe just like this for 25 years or so. The only difference is I use plain ol' chips, you know like Tostito's etc. It's almost like a Mexican Lasagne or something. I call mine Enchilida Casserole
When I saw this recipe it made me think of a dish my mom used to make with leftover chili. I had leftover chili so used that instead of canned. Also, topped the dish with letttuce, tomato, and sour cream when it came out of the oven. Quick and easy.
This has always been a favorite of mine. I'm a great fan of chili. Thanks for reminding me about it. For a simular dish (no chili), check out Mexican Chip Casserole #64441
I added all the optionals and used Fritos. Very good comfort food....till the heartburn hits, lol. Worth every minute of it. Great instructions, by the way, you should consider a career in writing :)
this was really good. I've always made the traditional Frito Pie but never thought to bake it. Nice change of pace. I sauted my diced onions in a little bit of butter then added in my chile and it tasted great. Thanks for the post!
My son and I enjoyed this very much. It was fast and easy meal.
This was good, but next time I think I will try the Tostito suggestion as I am not a big fan of corn chips. However, the chips aside, it was easy and tasty.
Yum. I made just one serving of this and really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing. Made for Cookbook Tag.
We've had chili over fritos before but never baked and OMG this tasted so good! I was going to take a picture to post but my family of four devoured it. YUM! Definitely a keeper. Thanks Mark H.
I know someone who used to make a recipe similar to this and I've been trying to find the recipe for forever and couldn't. Every other person who posted one added a whole bunch of other ingredients and it was horrible, I like to keep my Frito Pie simple, haha. The only thing I do different is add tomatoes. Thanks for posting! It was amazing! :)
