Frito Chili Pie!

I had no idea chili was so easy to make after I saw Ree's Frito Chili Pie recipe. I've been using canned chili for the longest time. Gross. It was also a great idea to make in our mini cooking class at work. Who doesn't love frito chips, homemade chili and cheese?

My recipe is a bit different from Ree's. I didn't use Rotel diced tomatoes and kidney beans. Also, we eye ball the ingredients like always.

  • ground beef
  • tomato sauce
  • ground oregano
  • ground cumin
  • ground chili powder
  • salt and pepper
  • pinto beans
  • a little flour diluted in water
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • frito corn chips
  • diced yellow onion


Brown ground chuck with garlic in a pot over medium-high heat. Add tomato sauce, salt, oregano, cumin, and chili powder. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 30 minutes.
Add drained and rinsed beans. Stir to combine, then cover and simmer for another 20 minutes.
Add flour diluted in water to the chili. Stir to combine and simmer for a final 10 to 15 minutes. Set aside.
Place corn chips on a plate, ladle chili on top, sprinkle cheese and yellow onion. Enjoy!
