If Fritos pie is a "signature dish" in your state, you need to step up your culinary game.

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.

Anthony Bourdain's show is the only thing worth watching on CNN.

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.

Newbaca: Frito Pie is disgusting.  Let Texas win this one.

Texas already beats NM based on the barbeque and Tex Mex, Frito Pie is just another notch on the belt. Step your game up NM!

Mateorocks: I can't seem to find the chili-cheese flavored Fritos anywhere these days. That's a shame.

I thought these were amazing. You're right, they did disappear. Total shame.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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

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.

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.
