Frito Pie in a Bag

I love this idea of a quick snack-on-the-go and I don’t know about you but I LOVE fritos with my chili!


6 (1 1/4 ounce) bags Fritos corn chips
4 1/2 cups chili, prepared
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 cups lettuce, shredded
12 tablespoons tomatoes, diced
6 plastic spoons
6 tablespoons sour cream (optional)
6 tablespoons onions, finely minced (optional)
yellow mustard (optional)


1 Crunch the pack of Fritos. You don’t want them in crumbs, but you want them broken up a bit. Slice open the side of the package.
2 Pour in 3/4 cup of chili.
3 Sprinkle some shredded lettuce on top of the chili.
4 Sprinkle some diced tomatoes on top of the lettuce.
5 Squeeze in a hearty squirt of yellow mustard, if desired.
6 Sprinkle onions on top, if desired.
7 Add a spoonful of sour cream, if desired.
8 Top it all with cheese.
9 Grab a plastic spoon and stick it in the middle, and you’re ready to enjoy a genuine Frito Pie.
