The Frito pie is one of the greatest delicacies ever (depending on your chili of course) but they oddly are harder to find than cheeseburgers.

If you're in the DC area, the Hard Times Cafe does a good one.

WOOOOOOOOO!

We are going on the 11th.

I freaking love the State Fair. The dog shows, the pig races, the car show, endless bands playing everywhere, turkey legs, Fletcher's Corn Dogs.

Oh yeah.

Frito Pie shouldn't be good. But it is. It's kind of like a Texas poutine.

THIS. I love that shiat. I have a neighbor that turned the Mrs. and me on to it. Easy to make and even easier to eat.

I make Frito pies all the time... usually after eating Frito pie.

If I could reliably find Fritos without barbeque seasoning on them in Canada I would make one of these the next time I make chilli.

I had Frito pie at the old Texas Stadium one night. And about 17 beers. Then almost got in a fight with a cabbie who wanted to charge us 5x what we paid to get out there to take us back downtown. Eventually we just gave him what we paid to get TO the stadium, and told him to call the cops if he had a problem.

Apparently he didn't still have a problem.

Frito pies should be made with chile, not chili. They do 'em up best in New Mexico.

Frito Pie? Stupid Texans. It's a Chili Billy.

I just had a visitor from Taos bring me some of Hatch's finest. Had some on burgers, and made green chili sauce for burritos. It's a good time of year out there!

Honestly It's not worth very much, I'll just make cornbread instead.

When sis was pregnant last year, there were long periods of time when all she wanted to eat was Frito Pie, which horrified her Massachusetts-born husband. Also, since they live in Philly, it's not as if she could just run out to the local joint (i.e. anywhere in the Italian Market, which they live down the block from) and get some.

Now I think just mentioning the words "Frito Pie" to her makes her hurl.

Mix cornmeal, salt and hot water together... drop small amounts in to hot oil. Instant homemade Fritos.

Make your own, but use real chili and real tortilla chips. That's what I do. Fritos will work, since they are one of the few Frito-Lay products that still tastes the same as it alway has. But I think them to be too salty for this dish.

I miss the Frito pies of the 70s-80s at small town ballparks. Canned chili and queso cheese on Fritos before baseball games (a couple of hours before, of course) was the fuel we all needed to win.

Now it's home-made chili and shredded Kraft cheese on those same Fritos, but it just isn't the same.

Ahhh. NM green chile. You guys are making me homesick. I used to rock the frito pies at Poco Loco in Carson all the time. With green chile as well as red. Probably my favorite meal. Check em out if you ever find yourself lost on the mesa.

Is the Southwestern version of green chili made with pork, cilantro, tomatillos and lime juice, like the Mexican version? I ask because many "Mexican" dishes from New Mexico and Arizona are actually indigenous to the Indians of that region.

Done in two.

There's a Hard Times four miles north of my house and I haven't visited them in FAR too long.

Yep, but many places will axe the pork to make it a meatless chile.

I ate in a southwestern restaurant once that served Navaho fry bread. Their version had ground buffalo meat that had been cooked with green and red chilies, onion, and herbs. It was then kneaded into dough, baked in a wood-fired oven and served with green chili for dipping. It was fantastic.

There is a place in Waco, TX called Vitek's that serves a massive and awesome pie. Have one in the morning and you'll only need a small snack before you go to bed.

And back then, $0.99 Frito pie was a very tasty meal that hit all the sweet spots.

I'm not saying it's not cheap (because it is)but you do realize that it's the same cheese they use for all their burgers and that real cheese is cheaper to produce than 'imitation cheese'. I worked at McDonalds when I was a teenager. We had a wallmart store in our town and I was sometimes scheduled there. The layout of the store was such that stock runs had to be made through the main store. One day I shopper stopped me and was astounded because he saw the eggs on my cart and He didn't think that we used real eggs in our egg Mcmuffins, and wonders never cease that's real butter too!

I grew up eating Frito Pie and thought once I became a Vegan I couldn't enjoy anymore. I was proven wrong on my first visit to Austin when I found a food truck (Vegan Yacht for you locals) that had a Vegan version of it. And yes, It tastes JUST as good as the original. And no, there was no tofu in it (I asked).
