Genuine Frito Pie

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Sandy in Oklahoma

Growing up in the 50's in the south, Frito Pie could be found at every drive-in, ballpark and greasy spoon cafe. It isn't put in a casserole, it isn't baked in the oven. It's eaten right out of the Frito package with a plastic spoon. The greasier the chili, the better the Frito Pie.
