Every once in a while I have some leftover steak, tri-tip or brisket. Often times it just gets eaten, sometimes on a sandwich or just eaten as a snack. This time around I needed something quick for lunch and some Frito Pie came to mind. Not sure why, but I did.
Frito Pie is a simple dish. Take a bag of Fritos and top them with chili and some toppings. A great easy dish for camping or tailgating. Nothing to wash, just eat and toss the bag in the trash can. I like to top mine with avocado, sour cream, cheese and a little cilantro. But the skies the limit for toppings. Maybe some chopped tomatoes, onions or jalapenos.
Let me know what you top your Frito Pie with.
And let me know why it’s called a “pie” if you know.
