Frito Pie is shockingly delicious

I digress.

Apparently I play both sides of the culinary field.

Melissa, my dear Texas y’all friend, introduced us to Frito Pie last night.  Sunshine wrapped production on a big project for Panasonic, so we decided to celebrate.  I made the crazy caprese salad with the balsamic “caviar”, and busted out a fabulous bottle of wine.  Then we moved on to the southern delicacy known as Frito Pie, and Shiner Bock beer.  I’m not a beer girl, but it sure hit the spot.

It was a fabulous pairing…like Sonny and Cher.  Well,  back in the day anyway.

Sonny, is that you?  Nah, it’s my Dad!!!!  Nice shirt Pops!  I would have to say you’re looking pretty groovy.

Melissa’s Frito Pie

  • 1 bag of Fritos
  • 3 cans of Hormel Chili
  • 1 bag of pre-shredded cheese
  • 1 8 ounce container of sour cream (full fat, this is no time to count calories)
  • 1 small container of crumbled blue cheese (the california twist)
  • 1/2 diced onion (optional for Melissa, but mandatory for me)

Open the cans of Hormel Chili and dump into a medium saucepan.

Melissa has done this before…

Stir until warmed through.

Place a generous amount of Fritos into individual serving bowls.

Top each bowl of Fritos with warm chili.

Add a dollop of sour cream.

Add the cheese!

Voila!  This Frito Pie really is shockingly delicious.

Try it.  I swear, you will love it.  Cheers.

Oops.  Gotta get to the gym.
