Ok, if you live in the South, you are probably familiar with Frito-Pie. My mouth waters just typing those words. Frito-Pie was a staple at my house growing up. It's quick, easy, delicious and filling. Ok, it's not healthy, but... what real home-style comfort food is? The recipe my mom used to make this tummy warming meal was simple, nothing you couldn't easily recreate. But, simple isn't necessarily a bad thing. Especially in this case!
- 1 bag of Fritos
- 1 can of chili
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Chopped onion
You can combine these four ingredients any which way you choose in your own bowl, but my favorite was always to have a layer of Fritos, a layer of cheese and onion, add warm chili and then top off with another layer of cheese and onions. I like mine cheesy and onion-y! If you REALLY wanna make it Texas-style, though, you can add sliced jalapenos for an extra kick! Yee-haw!
Back in the day, we used to get Frito-Pie at the high school football stadium concession stand. They'd open a bag of individual-sized Frito chips, pour the chili and cheese right into that bag and hand you a fork. Yes sir! No reason to make it any more complicated than that!
Frito-Lay recently came out with some new varieties for their Lay's Chips, featuring regionally inspired flavors! We have tried Chipotle Ranch, and it has some delicious spice to it! What can I say? I'm from Texas, I like my food to bite back! And for that reason I'd like to try to the Cajun Herb & Spice. The Garden Tomato & Basil also sounds like it'd be mighty tasty too! Which one looks good to you?
