Tastes from Home with Frito-Lay Recipe & Giveaway (Closed)

#8 is the winner!
We have a winner!  Congratulations to Jessica, who said: "I like Frito's barbecued corn chips!"  Jessica, I have emailed you, please respond by Wednesday to claim your prize.


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!

Frito-Pie Ingredients:
- 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?

Would you like to try some of these new Lay's flavors?  Frito-Lay is providing me with a variety pack of Lay's Regionally Inspired Flavors potato chips to give away to one of my readers.  All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me which of the Frito-Lay varieties is your favorite!  It can be old favorite or one of the brand new ones!  Make sure to leave an email address so I can contact you if you win.  Comments must be left by Friday, August 19th, 11:59pm.  Winner will be chosen using random.org, announced on Monday, August 22nd and notified by email, and have 48-hours to respond.

[Disclaimer: Frito-Lay provided me with chips to give away and this blog post was written as a form of entry into a contest for Frito-Lay prizes.  The opinions stated above are my own.]

I've only had the original flavor, which I love, but that Tangy Carolina BBQ sure sounds like winner to me.

Tiffany said...

Mmmm....I am boring and love sourcream and onion.

And my husband and I used to work at a summer camp that served that - they called it taco in a bag, and used taco meat instead of chili - yummm!

Liz, love. said...

Hi Jade...Just saw your contest and had to smile...we like our Frito chili pie EXACTLY the same way. I love to put the cheese & onions on the chips and layer on the chili then cheese (and I love lots of onions too). Yum...now I'm going to have to go to the store because it's been way too long since I've had some yummy Frito chili pie...love it with my homemade chili! But all of fritos chips are good...I love about every flavor - but it is hard to beat good ol' sour cream & onion!
