Texas Frito Pie
Frito Pie is a popular classic. Crunchy, cheesy, and packed with flavorful chili, this simple dish is always a family favorite!
- 4 cups Fritos (divided)
- 5 cups Chili
- 1 ¼ cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese (divided)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Heat chili on stovetop over medium heat or microwave until heated through.
Spread 2 cups of Fritos on the bottom of a pie pan and spread evenly.
Top Fritos with ¾ cup shredded cheese.
Pour warm chili over the Fritos and cheese and top with additional 2 cups of Fritos and ½ cup of shredded cheese.
Place Frito Pie in the oven for 5-8 minutes, or until cheese has melted and Fritos are hot.
Remove from the oven and serve with sour cream and chopped onions.
Use your favorite chili for this recipe, or even a canned chili if you want to keep it simple. I have my best chili recipe linked in the recipe card, but this smoked chili would be incredible too!
