Ten Tailgating Treats

No. 1 Frito Pie


Serves 1

1 two-ounce bag of original Fritos
Pot of chili, homemade or canned
Grated cheddar cheese
Diced white onion

Take a knife or some scissors and split the bag down the front.
Ladle in a scoop of chili.
Top with a mound of cheese and a heap of onion. Festoon your creation to your heart’s content (sour cream, jalapeños, avocado,
and so on), though
expect to be chastised 
by purists.

Eat it straight out of the bag, preferably atop a thick pile of  paper napkins.

This recipe originally appeared in the September 2012 issue of Texas Monthly.
