No. 1 Frito Pie
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.
