Betty makes the original Fritos Chili Pie Casserole for her family. The recipe originated either with the Frito-Lay Company or Sonic Drive-In Restaurants, where it was once served. If you like chili, cheese, and Fritos, you’ll *love* this recipe!
Fritos Chili Pie Casserole
3 cups Fritos corn chips
1/2 large sweet onion, chopped (Note: I used 1 whole large onion in my video, but I think most people will like this recipe better with 1/4 to 1/2 onion, chopped—unless you *really* love onions!)
15 oz. can chili (either with beans or no beans)
1 cup grated American cheese (I used Velveeta.)
Place 2 cups of Fritos corn chips in a baking dish. Arrange chopped onion and half of the grated cheese on corn chips. Pour chili over onion and cheese. Top with remaining corn chips and grated cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, until cheese is melted and corn chips on top are beginning to brown. Serve immediately. This is a great dish for kids!!!
