Native Frito Pie

If you visit any of the Pueblos in New Mexico you will probably find someone selling Frito Pies. They simply slit open a small bag of Fritos and top with chile, lettuce, onion and cheese. You eat it right out of the bag. I prefer a bowl, but if you want an authentic experience try it right out of the bag.


 1 bag Fritos® Corn Chips
 red chile, green chile, or chile con carne
 1 cup shredded cheese
 1 cup shredded lettuce
 2 Tablespoons chopped onion
-=[ Optional ]=- cooked ground beef shredded cooked chicken whole or refried beans


Pour Fritos into a bowl. Top with warmed chile and meat and beans if preferred. Add chopped onions, shredded lettuce and cheese.

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
