Frito Chili Pie

November 21, 2011

Leftover chili is not something that happens often in our house.  Most batches, no matter which kind we make, give us four servings.  Dinner one night, reruns the next.  But sometimes hubs will be hungry enough for 2 bowls the first night, leaving that one random serving to do something with.  And that, my friends, means Frito chili pie.  We prefer Scoops rather than the little Fritos because they don’t get soggy beneath the chili.  It makes a marvelous lunch or snack for two.


  • Frito’s Scoops
  • 1 cup fiesta blend cheese
  • 2 cups of leftover chili
  • sour cream


  1. In a pie plate or oven safe bowl, layer Frito’s Scoops.
  2. Layer over with chili.
  3. Add some of the cheese.
  4. Add more chips, more chili, more cheese.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted (about 10 minutes).
  6. Top with sour cream.

    I used to make this all the time when my kids were at home! Yum. Unfortunately, I was the only sour cream lover in the house. LOL

    I absolutely love leftover ideas that look different than the original. Yum!
