“I was watching King of the Hill, Peggy mentions making Frito® pie. My husband looks at me and says see if you can find something like that on the internet. Looking at other people's recipes on other sites, I decided to make my own version of Frito Pie. While Hank Hill prefers Wolf Brand Chili, I made my own. :) Hope you enjoy!”

This recipes was really delicious. My family was skeptical at first however they all ate it up and loved it. I did make a few changes...I used taco seasoning instead of chili. I left out the tomato juice. And I added a can of white beans to give the chili a bit more substance. I also served with chopped onions, slices of avocado and sour cream for those who wanted it.

I used a homemade chili seasoning and sauteed a little onion/garlic in with the ground turkey. I did not try this myself, I prepped the chili ahead of time for my husband to rewarm when he got home from work. All he had to do was make bowls of "taco fixin's" to go over the top, grate the cheese and open a bag of Fritos. They all say that this was tasty. My husband thought the chili could have been a little zippier but the kids liked it as is. NOTE: We used Chili Cheese Fritos.



In the 80s, we called this recipe "haystacks," adding additional toppings such as refried/black beans, sour cream, scallions, lettuce. My children make it for their children and I still enjoy it occasionally.
