Crock-Pot Frito Pie
This recipe is so simple to make but is great for serving a crowd. I have taken this homemade chili and a couple bags of Fritos corn chips to several potlucks over the years and it is always a big hit with everyone. I usually pack up my slow cooker with the chili already made and hot, Fritos, and then prepare a couple of containers with toppings.
Cheese is a given, I like either a nice sharp cheddar cheese or some Monterey Jack. Diced red onions, sliced jalapeños (for those who like it spicy), sliced black olives, sour cream…all great toppings to offer folks.
The homemade chili in this recipe is nice and mild so that it is kid friendly. But you can spice it up if you are serving to a more mature crowd.
To serve just set out some bowls and spoons and let folks grab a handful of chips, spoon some chili on top and add whatever toppings they like.
So good, inexpensive to feed a crowd and filling.
