    Cool Frito Pie...

    I don't know if this is a Midwestern thing or if it is all over, but it is super kid friendly!

    We normally get it at a food booth at our fall festival (Pumpkin Fest) and we've started making it at home.

    Basically, you take a small (individual size bag) of Fritos (at home I use a big bag of generic corn chips and put some in a bowl), then you can top it one of two ways:

    Chilli Frito Pie:
    Top fritos with chilli & your favorite fixins (onions, cheese, etc.)

    Taco Frito Pie:
    Top with taco meat and taco fixins

    It really is delicious, and the kids just love eating it right out of the tiny frito bags!

    My husband and I do this except that we usually do it in a bowl - split a can (or have a whole can) of chili, heat it, top with fritos and cheese, if we have it. I also like mine with onion, but he doesn't.

    Of course, doing it in a bag would mean less cleanup...

    I grew up eating Frito Pie... I think it's a Texan thing (that's where Frito is from and where my parents grew up) that has spread throughout the Midwest!

    Mom made hers by putting the fritos in a casserole dish, topping with chili, onions and cheese and baking in the oven until the cheese melted. Yummy!

    I think making it in a bag came along much later and I only heard of that in the past couple of years. I've only tried it once and prefer the baked pie.

    Thanks for the casserole idea, suki! I put just about everything into casserole form...I have no idea why I never thought to put this into one!
