Fritos chili pie is a classic casserole that can be made using the crunchy corn chips. Fritos are covered with chili as well as toppings such as onions, tomatoes and peppers. The dish is topped with a layer of melted cheese.
To make Fritos chili pie, pour one large bag of Fritos Original Corn Chips into an oven-safe serving dish. Heat one 15-ounce can of chili and pour it evenly over the chips. Chop your desired toppings such as onions, tomatoes, jalapeños and lettuce. Sprinkle these ingredients over the top of the dish and cover them with 8 ounces of shredded cheese. Bake in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degree Fahrenheit, until the cheese is melted. Serve this dish hot.
A fun variation on this recipe is to make Fritos walking tacos. To do this, heat the chili (make sure it is not too hot) and spoon some into a small bag of Fritos. Sprinkle the chopped vegetables over the beans, and top them with some shredded cheese. Repeat this process, using one bag of chips per serving. Use a fork to mix the ingredients and to eat them out of the bag. This is a popular way to enjoy the chili pie dish at picnics or other outdoor events.
