Frito Pie

Who doesn't love Frito Pie?  Delicious crunchy Frito's smothered in Chili and topped with cheese.  This makes a delicious meal at home or  on camp outs. You just need to put some Frito's - I use about a 2/3 of a cup and put them in a bowl.  I then ladle some chili over the Frito's and sprinkle with some cheese.   If you like, you can add some diced onions, sour cream. or black olives.

Frito Pie is a satisfying and comforting meal that is friendly on the budget.
