Frito Pie Baked Potato

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Starvin Single

This is a spicy meal meant for singles or couples. It's delicious and a great comfort food! Even though it involves a baked potato, this is not a side dish - it's a full meal. Thanks to Bakers Brothers Deli for the inspiration! For me, this is way too much food, so I usually eat half of it for one meal and half later.

This was a simple and tasty meal. Both my grandson and I enjoyed it a lot. Thanks for sharing. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 large baked potato
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional) or 1 tablespoon margarine (optional)
  • 1 (15 ounce) canwolf brand chili with beans
  • 12 cup Fritos chili cheese corn chips (crushed into large pieces, this is done easiest while still in the bag)
  • 14 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 -2 tablespoon light sour cream
  • 1 -2 tablespoon pickled jalapeno pepper
  • Tabasco sauce


  1. In the microwave or oven, bake the large potato (leave the skin on before and after cooking).
  2. While baking the potato, heat the chili on the stove top or in the microwave.
  3. After cooking the potato until tender, chunk it with a fork removing any brown spots while adding in the butter.
  4. Sprinkle the potato with cheese and pour on some of the heated chili. If necessary, heat the smothered potato in the microwave for 30 seconds or so.
  5. Mix in the crushed Fritos and top with sour cream, jalapenos, and Tabasco sauce, all to taste.
  6. Mix well, eat well, and tell your vegetarian friends and cardiologist that you'll die happy.
