I remember the first time I tried Frito pie. I was with my grandparents at our yearly fair in the small town in Tennessee where I grew up. This recipe is about as Southern as you can get. It is simple and extremely delicious. I have heard some people bake it all together but where I’m from we just pile it on top of one another so we do not get soggy chips. When making this meal I lay out everything buffet style and allow everyone to help themselves.
Frito plain chips (11 ounce bag)
4 cups prepared chili (alternatively 2 cans of chili)
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1. In a large serving dish, add chips, pour chili on top, sprinkle cheese, and add tomatoes, dollop with sour cream and sprinkle jalapeños or set up buffet style and let everyone help themselves.
