Frito Chili Pie

Laurie Roberts


My Mom used to make this for us when we were kids. It's embarassingly easy and so kid friendly. You can use different types of chips like tortilla, but we always had it with Fritos. You could also add different types of cheeses, layer them in between instead of just on top and I'm sure there are alot of other options. This is just how my mom made it, plain and simple.
