Frito Pie

05 Apr

FritoPie-6

 

After the healthy vegetable panini and feta cheese spread posts that I’ve done lately, it’s time to post something indulgent: a classic Frito pie. I guess the difference between a Frito pie and boat is that boats are in the small bags of Fritos? I don’t know. Anyway, this is a simple chili with some Dubliner cheese (cheddar is fine, or pepper jack) over Fritos.

FritoPie-1

 

Start by browning a pound of lean ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat.

FritoPie-2

 

Once the ground beef is browned and broken up, drain the grease off. Return to heat, and add diced garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, paprika, coriander, and cayenne pepper. Cook 1-2 minutes, until spices start to darken and release fragrant odors.

FritoPie-3

 

Add 1 cup of Guinness and 1 can of fire roasted crushed tomatoes, stir well, and bring to a simmer over medium high heat.

FritoPie-4

 

Once at a simmer, reduce heat to medium low, and cook until all of the liquid has evaporated but meat remains moist, about 20 minutes.

FritoPie-5

 

Pour over a bowl of Fritos and top with grated cheddar cheese.
