When I was in high school many years ago (don't you dare ask how many...), I worked at Walmart in the snack bar (do you remember those?!) and I would make a TON of Frito Chili Pies EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. and I ate them... practically every. single. day.
To this day, I still get a serious craving for them.
Hormel Chili. Cheese Sauce. Salty, crunchy corn chips.
I like to add a bit more to my pie.
There's nothing like adding a bit of pico de gallo and cilantro to really take it all up a notch. The salty, crunchy deliciousness from the chips, the meaty Hormel Chili, the tangy nacho cheese, the fresh veggies and spicy jalapenos from the pico de gallo and the creaminess of the sour cream.
Oh my nominess.
The best part of it all? It's quick. It's easy. It can be made at the drop of a hat.
Put some Fritos in a bowl.
(already have the cheese and chili heated by the time, FYI)
Pour on the Hormel.
Pour on some cheese.
I like Nacho Cheese and when I don't feel like making it from scratch, I buy canned.
Top with pico de gallo (tomatoes, onions, cilantro, jalapeno and lime salsa) and sour cream.
