Fancified Frito Pie

Fancified Frito Pie

Ah, Frito Pie … so kitschy … so guilt-inducing … so completely and totally irresistible. Frito Pie represents classic Americana casserole art at its best: crunchy corn chips, hearty chili, and toppings a-go-go, each serving personalized to suit each person at the table; meals just don’t get any better than that. I’ve reinvented traditional Lone Star Frito Pie here, pressing the crushed corn chips into a fluted tart form to create an elegant shell. Finish your ‘pie’ with some of the best chili around and a healthy dose of melted cheese, and no one will think twice about digging in to this comely casserole.

Frito Pie Cooking Tip

Making two casseroles is just as easy as making one – freeze the second for busy days ahead.
