So every now and then, I buy a bag of Fritos.  Usually when I do this it is a splurge!  

I always have found memories of the bag of Frito Pie at the neighborhood drive in.  Those probably have gone out of business since we now have fast food places.  

Anyway this is what they looked like:

I like to make mine in a bowl like this because it is so simple:

Here is how I make mine:  Heat a can of chili with beans.  Have a bowl of fritos for everyone to help themselves.

Put a handful of fritos in the bowl.  Spoon a generous helping of chili then sprinkle with cheese and minced onions.  Then Enjoy!


There are several recipes for making it more like a pie. Like this

That looks great! I'll definitely file the idea away. It's really similar to something we do here (Canada) which we call Walking Tacos. It starts with a bag of Doritos, add taco meat, cheddar, shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, salsa, sour cream... basically you make a taco in a bag. Kids love it. But I'm happy to have this alternative too!
