In Sante Fe, there is this wonderful little place near the plaza that serves Frito pies with a twist. This is my husband's and my version of it.

Made this frito pie for lunch today - I had forgotten how much I like it. I did "Texanize" it a bit however by adding chili, and some corn to accompany the black beans. I added the green chilies, but I also added some pickled jalapenos to top it off. I will definitely make this dish again as it is so tasty and easy to put together. Made for Fall PAC, 2012.
