Debbie's Frito® Pie

Rated as 4.25 out of 5 Stars

"I love this recipe because it can be prepared ahead and frozen. Thaw time is minimal. A great dish for game day or surprise company. I really love this dish because it is so simple to make, yet it tastes fabulous. It freezes well, so when you have time on your hands, you can make a couple up and freeze them. Then when you are harried or just plain tired, just pop it in the oven and have a wonderful meal. It is also well within anyone's budget. Some like it better the second time around. Any kind of salad goes well with it."

There is only two of us so I scaled way down and I also made a few changes so it is a little hard to rate this recipe. The one negative thing I am going to say is that 2 pounds of cheese is over...

Made this last night before the hockey game. It was SUPER easy and delicious. I used 2 cans of Hormel chili and as much cheese as I wanted. One suggestion - season up the chili before you add it...

I have a version of this in the oven right now. I had made some chili a couple of days ago and had almost a quart left over so I thought this sounded good. I only had white corn chips but I used...

I made this last week and my family loved it. They keep asking me to make it again. Thanks for the recipe.

Excellent receipt - definitely a keeper. I had some shredded chicken and fresh corn which I added. I halved the recipe and used almost 8 pz. of cheese.
