All Dat Frito Pie

There are few things in life more addicting then Frito Pie, which I was privy to trying for the very first time on Super Bowl Sunday. Ultra fattening snacks and sports are two things I am rather illiterate in but when the saints came marching in for the first time ever, I was willing to share in the revelry with some unique indulgences. With gold beads on, spicy hot chicken wings as accompaniment, carnivale music during the commercial breaks, the loud screams from the men in the house during the great, grueling game, and my best friend Lisa's hyper cooking skills I fell in love with this ancient game day dish and invite you all to do the same. Must serve on Sundays when there are friends in the house and some form of competition to participate in!

Frito chips
Frito Scoops
Can of your favorite chili
Cheddar cheese

Line the bottom of a round tin with fritos and then put Frito Scoops along the sides in a circle. Pour in the can of chili. Grate copious amounts of cheddar cheese on top. Bake in a 350 oven for ten minutes. Sprinkle extra Scoops on top. Serve with small plates and have guests use the scoops to eat the pie! One tin can serve four people but this dish is so addicting you will want to make two!

  1. Sounds so good I want it now! Best if you heat the Chili on the stove first, then pour it over the chips and bake w/cheese - YUM!
    Glad you enjoyed it!
