Well when you tell the truth you're going to piss some people off
 
2013-10-01 10:20:53 AM  
It is a Texas dish.

I do two kinds.  One is traditional fritos, chili and cheese.  The other is a little fancier in that I replace the fritos with cornbread.

If Fritos pie is a "signature dish" in your state, you need to step up your culinary game.
 
2013-10-01 10:35:39 AM  

James!: I replace the fritos with cornbread.


and that my friend is the answer
 
2013-10-01 10:36:20 AM  
For some reason New Mexico thing that it is a native dish because some one started serving it in the 1960's.  But since there are articles in Texas newspapers going back to the 1940's with the recipe, I'm going to have to say it is a Texas invention.
 
2013-10-01 10:38:40 AM  
Goddammit, that sounds yummy.
 
2013-10-01 10:44:51 AM  
Bourdain described the southern delicacy

No, not delicacy.........concession stand food........

/and it has to have yellow mustard

I thought green chillies was the New Mexico thing.

basemetal: I thought green chillies was the New Mexico thing.


Hatch green chile. The best.

Five & Dime General Store

Huh. When I was growing up there, that was a Woolworth's. That closed to much wailing and gnashing of the teeth a few years after I left. Looks like some guy reopened it just to sell Frito pies?

I heard there's a Wal-Mart now. too. Blech.
 
2013-10-01 11:08:30 AM  
I just figured out why they wear ten-gallon hats down there. They need an extra-large wind scoop to fan away all that flatulence.

That's similar to tamale pie.  Awesome.
 
2013-10-01 11:57:10 AM  
it is a Texas dish.

Wolf Brand Chili, and Frito's,  with shredded cheese and diced onions.  Served in the bag.

I make it with homemade chili and mexican for family dinner.
 
2013-10-01 11:57:32 AM  
I still want to sue that New Mexican "winery" for false advertising.  That shiate HAD to be Koolaid.

And, now I'm hungry.

What did Anthony have to say about their meth?
 
2013-10-01 12:03:02 PM  
I can't seem to find the chili-cheese flavored Fritos anywhere these days. That's a shame.

Zombie Eater: What did Anthony have to say about their meth?


Bourdain is more of a cocaine guy than a meth guy.
 
2013-10-01 12:04:46 PM  
Ditto to those who said it's a Texas dish and supposed to be served in the bag. I lived on those things in middle school. I still make it now when I have chili.
 
2013-10-01 12:06:46 PM  
Wow. Get your panties in a wad because some lazy-assed stoner concoction got dissed?
 
2013-10-01 12:09:04 PM

I thought peyote was the New Mexico thing.
 
2013-10-01 12:10:21 PM  
So meth is not the state dish?
 
2013-10-01 12:11:32 PM  

Pinner: lazy-assed stoner concoction got dissed?


Nope, football game and or fair food.
 
2013-10-01 12:11:42 PM  
Chili and cheese as the only additions? Throw in some diced green onions, diced jalapenos, sour cream and diced tomatoes. That makes it a meal instead of merely a snack.

/OK, it's still a snack.
//diced, diced baby.
 
2013-10-01 12:12:50 PM  
with all the unbelievably delicious chile-laden food in new mexico, why the hell would you even eat Texas Frito Pie?

Much like poutine, Frito Pie is best eaten with eyes closed. That stuff looks NASTY but tastes good
 
2013-10-01 12:14:22 PM  
Cripes, even the state's name isn't original.

Don't know about where you live but they are still available here in Texas, then again Frito-Lay is based here.
 
2013-10-01 12:14:55 PM  
Frito pie is gas station food.  It's like getting mad that someone doesn't shiat themselves with joy at the sight of a hot dog.
 
2013-10-01 12:16:33 PM  
Wait, I'm from New Mexico and I've never heard that Frito Pie was a New Mexico thing. We already have green chile. Why would we even want to claim the half-assed dish that is frito pie?

WTF, that is disgusting.

It has to be a Texas thing.  It's a shame, i hear about great food in N.M.
 
2013-10-01 12:21:32 PM  
The only good thing to do with Fritos is put them in a PB/oatmeal-bread sandwich.
 
2013-10-01 12:22:41 PM  
I used to make the ghetto version of this at 7-11 as a kid. Never got called out on stealing their Big Bite chili and cheese.

Yes, shortly after Fritos were invented in Dallas.
 
2013-10-01 12:23:52 PM  
On a semi-related note, as much as CNN provides ample evidence that they really don't know what the hell they're doing, they don't appear to be messing with Bourdain's show. I haven't seen the New Mexico episode yet, but the others come off as a more mature version of No Reservations.

And I really, really want to go to Granada.
 
2013-10-01 12:26:16 PM  
Bourdain didn't upset the entire state, he just pissed off the owner of the store where he got the Frito pie because he (probably accurately) described the chili and cheese it was made with. He also said it was delicious.
If the ingredients are good it sounds like a perfectly good meal.

But isn't any version of this 'food' ghetto?

Check over in the snack section where stuff is packaged in tubes and cans rather than bags. You'll find (or least I did here in FL) a plethora of these:

Frito Pie IS a Texas dish.  Frito's are from Dallas area.

But New Mexico doesn't need or want it.  Their stuff with green chiles is fantastic.  Enchaladas, tacos, whatever.  That's the state dish.
 
2013-10-01 12:42:24 PM  
Anthony Bourdain's show is the only thing worth watching on CNN.
 
2013-10-01 12:47:51 PM  
New Mexico resident here.

Can't think of anything almost as revolting as a Frito Pie.
 
2013-10-01 12:48:36 PM  
I've lived in New Mexico a good chunk of my life.

Everyone I know who has ever had one has

1) Made the same joking observation about how it looks, usually at a high school football game after getting it at a concession stand.
2) Knows it's an imported Texas thing.

I suppose there could be some very recent transplants up in Santa Fe who can't distinguish what's from here, and what's from elsewhere. They're the sort who would probably think the same thing about homecoming mums.

Sticking Hatch green chiles in everything is the big deal everyone pats themselves on the back for around here.
 
2013-10-01 12:55:32 PM  
We've passed peak-Bourdain long ago, methinks.
 
2013-10-01 01:02:24 PM  
Don't wanna get accused of making shiat in a bag?  Quit putting shiat in a bag.
 
2013-10-01 01:02:25 PM  
Dear Anthony,

I'm sorry you can't pick on Paula Deen anymore for being a hypocritical diabetic butterslut because everyone else has already battered her to bits for being a racist. I was going to suggest picking on that guy who keeps going around to family run diners and shovelling 12 pound burgers down his gullet while massaging the grease all over his body and moaning. But he's gone and lost 60 pounds because he'd realised he'd turned into the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Please find a new arch-nemesis. Preferably someone really farking annoyingly chirpy who cooks awful shiate involving Cool Whip.

Evil Mackerel: So meth is not the state dish?


That's ours.

2013-10-01 01:23:31 PM  
Look, when the food's key ingredient is Frito's, it stops being a delicacy.

/It's like calling these a delicacy

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Frito Pie IS a Texas dish.  Frito's are from Dallas area.

But New Mexico doesn't need or want it.  Their stuff with green chiles is fantastic.  Enchaladas, tacos, whatever.  That's the state dish.


I've heard the chiles are great, and the one time I've been in New Mexico (ages past), I actually felt like home when it came to food.
 
2013-10-01 01:30:08 PM  
Even Dean Winchester wouldn't eat that pie.

Foxxinnia: Wait, I'm from New Mexico and I've never heard that Frito Pie was a New Mexico thing. We already have green chile. Why would we even want to claim the half-assed dish that is frito pie?


It's really more of a quirky tradition specific to the Santa Fe Plaza. Bourdain is talking out his ass.
