Yeah, I made a Frito Pie. I saw one in my Pinterest feed over the weekend, and it looked good. Monday was the bambino’s last day of kindergarten, and since there was no after-school care, I took the afternoon off. I had the time, so I made up a batch of Cincinnati chili, and thought I’d give the Frito Pie a shot.
Not that it was bad–Jay and I made short work of what was in that pie plate (okay, I’m the one who cleaned it out).
And I did like the way the chili made some of the chips a little soggy, if you will…Kind of like corn tortillas. Plus, the outer chips stayed crunchy, so there was a nice contrast there. And the nice thing is, you can easily make this into a 4-way or a 5-way Cincinnati-style Frito Pie. Just layer the onions and beans on top of the chili before adding all the cheese!
Either way, it’s good stuff. A little taste of my hometown to start off the week.
