Frito Pie

So I love a good bowl of Chili, but, I also like to not waste and throw things away. So when I make a good bowl of Red, I always make Frito pie or Chili dogs within that week because I am not one to waste food.The rest  of the Chili goes into 2 cup portions in the freezer or to share with friends and family. I always put out a Frito Pie Bar and or a Taco Bar for Super Bowl Sunday and let the folks make there own. Here are the directions for a single portion.

1/ 2 cup rough crushed Frito King Size Corn Chips
1 cup Chili
2 tablespoons Shredded Cheddar Cheese or Shredded Monterrey Jack Cheese
2 Tablespoons Chopped Tomatoes
2 Tablespoons Sliced Black Olives
1 or 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream
1 or two teaspoons Green onions.

Take Frito’s and Crush roughly.

1 Cup Chili on top, Next add Cheese

Then add the following items which are all (optional)
Tomatoes, Olives, Sour Cream and Green Onions

Bon Appetite and Enjoy

  1. There's not many things Texans like more than Frito pie...comfort food at its best! I like to do this with leftover chili and so yummy!

  2. I agree -- one of the best things about making a pot of chili is the mileage you can get out of it for days. Frito pie is definitely one of the yummiest things to do with leftover chili!
