Cute idea, we all ate it up!
We sell these at our kids' sporting events/concession stand. We call them Walking Tacos or Taco in a bag and more often use Doritios. Instead of chili we use taco meat. Also - don't forget shredded cheese!
This was a favorite of my mother's when she was a child as well... Mom used to take me to a local drive-in where we would both get Frito Pies. Yum! Yum! I'm really glad to find this recipe posted and hope lots of people try it.
This has been a family favorite clear back to when my husband was a child. My kids request it regularly. We make it in a bowl, unless we're camping, and we typically use canned chili. We add shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatos, onions, and salsa. Our family name for it is "Ha Cha Cha".
Who knew something so simple could taste so good??? We just got back from our camping trip and really enjoyed this campfire lunch! (I have to admit we used canned chili con carne and heated it on the campfire right in the opened can!) Big hit with the kids! Thanks!
They make these at our high school athletic events, sell them and call them "Walking Tacos"... the kids love them and they make good money too :)
I used your Three Sisters Vegetable Stew to topped the fritos. It was delicious. I think I liked Frito pie prepared this way more than with regular chili. Thanks Mommy Makes. Bullwinkle.
Oh, I miss this. It brings me back to my childhood at the beach. I good scoop of sour cream and some shredded cheese makes it a classic.
