Frito Chili Pie


The first time I ever had Frito Chili Pie was at my grandmother's house. She liked to serve it in a casserole dish and it was one of her go-to recipes for small family gatherings. Here's my version of her recipe. Enjoy! 

2 pounds lean ground hamburger
1/2 cup chopped green peppers
1 cup diced onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon soy sauce
15 oz. chili beans
10 oz. Frito corn chips
Shredded Colby Cheese, Sour Cream, and Salsa

In large skillet, brown hamburger on medium-high heat. Add green peppers, onion, and garlic. Saute until tender. Add chili powder, onion powder, cumin, soy sauce, and chili beans. Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Serve over a layer of corn chips. Top with cheese, sour cream, and salsa. Serves 4-6.
