Frito Pie

This is one of the easiest dinners EVER!It only has 3 ingredients, takes about 20-25 minutes from start to finish and it tastes delicious!I made this for dinner recently, and decided to repost it for those that haven’t gotten a chance to see it yet and also to update my old picture.I want to make this as simple as possible.This is just a dump and bake kind of recipe.First, pour in the Fritos on the bottom of a 9×13.Then pour on the chili.Then sprinkle some shredded cheese on top.Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted and Frito Pie is warmed all the way through.Serve up! It tastes great with a spoonful of sour cream, too!How easy is that?!FRITO PIE1 large bag frito chips (I don’t always use all of them)3 cans classic Stagg Chili (you can really used any canned chili or even homemade if you like.  Stagg is just a personal favorite of mine)1 cup shredded cheese (Give or take, it just depends how cheesy you like it)Pour Fritos to cover the bottom of a 9×13.Pour chili over Fritos. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and Chili is heated all the way through.Enjoy!

    Most people have heard of different recipes for cookies to give as a gift in a jar. Do you know of any recipes I could use this same gift but giving a casserole in a casserole dish. I have several nieces and every year I buy different dishes for the holiday with a theme (Italian, Mexican etc...) I would appreciate any ideas you have.
