Frito Pie Recipe

A few of you have asked how to make the casserole.  I'm happy to share the joy.

Mexi-Chili Casserole or Frito Pie

I left in some asides from my mom because she is adorable.  I also doubled the recipe for the casserole I served at the potluck which served about 30 people.  I also added ground beef but mom has also used ground turkey in the past.

16 oz. pkg. of corn chips or larger extra chips can be put on table to munch on.
2 cups grated cheese (usually cheddar)
1 15 oz. can of chili with beans
1 15 oz. can of enchilada sauce
1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 tsp. instant minced onion
1 cup dairy sour cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Reserve 1 cup corn chips and 1/2 cup cheese.  Combine the rest of the chips and cheese with chili, sauces and onion.  Pour mixture into a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish and bake uncovered for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.  Take out of oven and spread top with sour cream.  Sprinkle with reserved cheese.  Then place the rest of the corn chips in a ring around the edge.  Bake 5 minutes longer.

Note:  To add quantity add cooked ground beef as wanted.

Can be cooked in microwave.  Cover and put in for 5 minutes then stir and cook for another 3-4 minutes or until heated through.  Then add sour cream, cheese and corn chips.  Heat uncovered until cheese is melted.

If you make it, let me know how it turns out.
