    JustaQT's Note:

    Living in the south you find these at football games, Sonic Drive Inn, and just about any fair that you attend. Very tasty and even better with a squirt of mustard.

      Being from Texas, Frito Pie was the 6th food group....especially at a football game! Wolf Brand Chili is the only way to go (NO BEANS!). I eat mine with diced red onion, cheese and sour cream on top. I absolutely hate mustard so I'll have to leave that one out. :-) Thanks for posting.

      also a great recipe to use for fund-raising events! our p.t.a. sold them at fun night recently and served them directly out of snack-size bags of fritos corn chips. a fun presentation, yummy and very popular!

      This was a fun Sunday night dinner. I used Kelly's Chili for the chili. We've never had Frito Pie before & DH felt a pie should have a top, so I topped with crushed corn chips & grated cheese. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
