Frito pie is the essence of all that is good about southern culture. Take a bowl, toss in a handful of fritos corn chips, ladle over a HUGE spoonful of your favorite chili (mine is homemade using wick fowlers two alarm kit as a starting point) and top with grated cheese (not optional) and onions (optional). If you have not had frito chili pie, i feel oh so sorry for you. It is almost as good as sex or holding your son for the first time.

We have that in Iowa, but I've never heard it called that. It's a variant of a midwestern staple, "5-way Chili".

1. a bed of spaghetti
2. chili
3. beans
4. onions
5. cheese

I had to think for a long long time on that before I could come up with anything at all.

sounds like you just turned Frito Chili Pie into a taco salad!! I am a Chili Pie Purist. Only Fritos brand corn chips, chili and cheese are required. Onions are optional and superflous IMHO. Add anything else and you are playing in a mine field. That said, I may try a spoon full of sour cream on top, as suggested by EJ.

On a side note, my wife makes taco soup. It is a spicy beef soup with corn and salsa in it. It is served over tostada chips, and topped with sour cream and grated cheese. It is as good as chili pie, just a bit different.

Add ice cold, sun brewed, sweet tea to the "wash it down with list". IMHO the milk would be better to wash down the post frito pie cobbler.

i don't know who you are or where you came from, but frito pie is a layer of bean dip and cheese between two layers of fritos, it's like if God were going to make an Oreo (he might even dip it in sour cream)
