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.
Oops. Gotta get to the gym.
