This is the original Frito Pie Recipe, created by the wife of one of the Frito executives in the 1950s. It's a classic, perfect football game food or anytime you want something that's quick and easy that the whole family will love. There are a lot of variations but this is the original!
8ouncesFritos Corn Chips, a little more wouldn't hurt
48ouncesWolf Brand Chili, no beans
1large onion, chopped
2cupsCheddar cheese, shredded
Heat the chili until it is steaming hot.
Place Fritos in a lightly oiled casserole dish.
Cover with the chili.
Cover top with cheese.
Heat until cheese melts.
Serve sprinkled with onions and sour cream if desired.
You can also serve this right in the individual sized bags of Fritos. Just turn the bags on their sides, snip the top edge to open, and pour in the hot chili. That's the classic way it's served at football games around here.
