What a fun recipe!!! I made this for my lunch today. Didn't realize til I was at the end of the list of ingredients/instructions, that there wasn't any tomatoes, sauce or paste in this recipe with the meat mixture, so wasn't sure what to expect. I did add a good bit of minced onion to the beef while it was cooking, but that was the only change I made to the recipe. I loved it (well with the added onion) just the way it is posted. Definitely will be a repeat here at our house. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for Culinary Quest 2015.

Yum! I've never had Frito pie before and was really curious. Of course, it helps that I love Fritos! I quartered the recipe to make a nice lunch for me and my son today. We both really loved the flavor. It was a fun lunch. Thanks! Made for Culinary Quest 2 - Tex-Mex

I hope it's ok to review this even though I used your recipe just as a guide. I made my own chili recipe and then layered the Fritos, onions, chili, lettuce, tomato and cheese like your instructions. I had never heard of Frito Pie and am glad to have tried it. What a great combination the Fritos and chili are! I was full after my first bowl, but I still went back for a (small) 2nd helping ;) Thanks for posting.

This is soooooo good! I also served it with raisins & some diced pears. I put picante sauce on it. It is yummy. In our part of the country, it's called a chili pile-on! It's fun to serve at a party buffet style. You put the different ingredients in different dishes and let each guest take a plate and "pile-on" the ingredients he/she wants. No two guests will have the same dish.
