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.


  1. Scoop handful Fritos into bowl.
  2. Heat black beans and green chile separately.
  3. Top Fritoes with black beans, then green chile, and then Jack cheese.
  4. Top with tomatoes, onions, jalepenos.
  5. Serve!

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.
