I did the Frito pie thing on a camping trip years ago. I thought it would be good. It wasn't.
I'll bet they're deewishuss. I use quartered corn tortillas for the layers but I thought of the casserole because my mom used to put a layer of Tostito rounds on top. My own sacrilege is a New Mexican variant with Hatch vs bell pepper and less onion, more garlic. Casseroles are like stew... infinitely variable, hard to screw up.
As a matter of fact, those muffins are now at the top of my list! Thanks for the idea.
jstor let me down: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frito_pie
damn this is making me hungry and lunch is like 3 hours away..
Ever try Russian Roulette nachos? A jalapeno slice is placed on each tortilla chip on a baking tray except for one. The one remaining chip gets a nice thick slice of habanero, with all the seeds if you want to pack a magnum load. Cover them all with Oaxaca and other south of the border cheeses and a little chili if you like. Simple enough. Until...
I have never heard the term "Frito Pie".
Me neither. Never heard of Frito pie and as with @BigDaddyLH, I’m surprised that Fritos are still made.
In a bag?! Is that a microwave th8ng?
The things you learn in the Bad Dog Cafe.
Liking it. May happen soon.
First I saw it on a menu was at the lunch counter at Woolworths on the Plaza in Santa Fe, NM! Back ~1992....?
Wiki says it first appeared in Texas circa 1949, and was “invented” by Frito founders mother Daisy Doolin or her secretary, Mary Livingston.
Their idea was to use Fritos as an ingredient.
Sorry for the New Mexico “red herring”.
I did indeed hear “through the grapevine” that it was invented in New Mexico, as was my sweet high school girlfriend.
She was born in Hobbs.
I remember the distinctive smell of Fritos -- it's the same smell a dog has when it needs a bath. Amirite?
Not much on the frito pie, but I make nachos regularly. I grow the chiles, and my wife keeps us in appropriate cheeses. Leftover meat or shrimp often makes its way onto the tray.
The most important thing IMHO is the chips.I like these guys. I think they’re made in Texas. Close to authentic Mexican IME. Thin, light, and they have a no salt version.
Love that brand, get them whenever we see them.
Stands to reason, I think it's somewhat more popular here and I'd guess that's why locals think/claim it was invented here.
I follow this account on FB, and they just posted this. Big brother, dang.
We are lucky, our large supermarket chain (Publix) carries them. Always 2 bags in our house. My wife considers them a staple of life
OK.I'll bite.What is King Ranch Casserole?
Penultimate Texas potluck dish/side. There's a ton of ways to do it, but it's basically this:
Its name comes from King Ranch, one of the largest ranches in the United States, although the actual history of the dish is unknown and there is no direct connection between the dish and the ranch. Recipes vary, but generally it has a sauce made of canned diced tomatoes (commonly the Ro-Tel brand) with green chiles, cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, diced bell pepper, onion, and chunks or shreds of chicken. The bottom of the casserole is lined with corn tortillas or tortilla chips, then layered with sauce and topped with cheese.
I'm not following this. I have lived in Arizona my entire life and frito pie goes back as far as I can remember.
I am back from the grocery store and here is my report!
The chip aisle was well-stocked:
But where are all the Fritos? Here they are:
A small spot, tucked away on the bottom shelf. Anyone who's stocked in a grocery store knows what that means. Still, I bought a bag. Will report back again, when I get the munchies.
