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.
Yummy! I made these for the "Tailgate Potluck" and they turned out quite better than the football game I was watching (my team lost). These are like chili nachos and taste great with either jalapenos on top or a splash of tabasco sauce. Nice easy football snack! Thanks for posting!
i have to agree with everyone else -- hard to mess this up -- what i love is that it works whether i am using vegetarian chili, chicken chili, canned chili or homemade chili and i can control the spices depending on who i am making it for -- mine is always hotter then the bowl i make for anyone else
No better way of using left over chili.
What a great walk down memory lane! When I was young I used to live in West Texas and had more than my fair share of frito pies, lol. I haven't had one for years, so totally enjoyed this one. Thanks for the blast from the past JustaQT! Made for Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.
Can't really go wrong with this one. YUMMO!
Definately one of my favorite comfort foods. You cannot improve this recipe...well maybe you can spice it up to your heat level preference with chopped jalapenos, but that's all. I love this one!
I love Frito pie. Moving to Idaho from Oklahoma, people thought I was crazy when I mentioned Frito Pie. I love to make it with leftover home made chili. Thanks for posting this, so it won't be just a southern thing!!
