I rarely ate Fritos when living in The States. Somehow I missed them, lots. My sister is a stewardess for United Airlines. On a flight she met the big Frito's boss. She mentioned me to him.


He sent me a gigantic box of fritos!!! Sent all the way here, in the Netherlands! Talk about a nice man.

Every now and then I can find a frito's clone. My kids like them as well. Frito pie! Yummy.

What a nice guy, Pam! That must've made you so happy!

I must say, I don't eat them often (as they're highly addictive) but when I do, watch out! They were always my "chip of choice" the whole time I was growing up. I like them so much more than potato chips. And, of course, a taco salad isn't complete without fritos on the top!

forgive my Newness, but still having little idea of what a "Frito" is can you use Natchos instead?
and from what I read in the OP, is it like some sort of lasagne type construction?

I do a single layer sorth with natchos, then chili peppers and loads of cheese and bake it, I gather you do similar but with multi layers and use Chili instead?

if I`ve got it wrong, just say, but the chili/Natcho lasgne idea with the cheese I think I`ll try anyway, sounds like real Comfort Food :)

Fritos are a thicker chip made with some secret ingredient that makes them different than regular corn tortilla type chips. I've never done it the OP's way. Too expensive for my budget. Velveeta is completely cost prohibitive for just one dish.

We always did what Michael grew up on but we called them Chili Billies and they sold them at the softball field. They still sell them at the baseball field my nephews play at in CA. I take the fritos, top with chilli, top with cheese, add onions and I do it in each individual bowl.

I make frito upside down pies. I like my fritos crunchy! I make some red chile (either from powder or pods) with ground beef and beans. Top that with some sour cream, cheese, lettuce, tomato, fritos on top and more cheese. Like sephora, individual bowls. The traditional way is slitting open a frito's bag and pouring the chili and cheese on top.

Some frito pie history~

Santa Fe, NM- This is where I grew up!

Seems we call them "walking tacos" at our baseball/football concession stands. Slightly crush the fritos in the bag before opening, add taco meat, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion. and serve the bag with a fork and a napkin of course. Yum!

The OP's recipe sounds good too. I never really thought of turning the walking taco we love into a casserole type dish. Hmmmm maybe that will be our monday night football dinner

The Fritos site does include the walking Frito Pie which is the whole "in the bag thing" ~ they recommend it as Hormel Chili, cheese, and Fritos.
