It’s not Tailgating without Frito Pie!

It's not Tailgating without Frito Pie!

Sweaters, footfall, and autumn spice lattes- there is nothing quite like fall in the south! After a long work week, there's just somethin' special about a tailgate before the game. Beer and music are essentials for a tailgate, but MOST importantly, you've gotta have food!
Barbecue, jalapeño poppers, caso- you name it, and you'll probably find it at the tailgate! My personal favorite tailgate snack has got to be good ole' Frito Pie. Southern smokey flavor and delightfully crunchy Fritos are the best of both worlds and a fantastic way to start your pre-gaming experience.

All you'll need is

  • 1lbs of ground beef,
  • 1 chopped white onion
  • 1 can of Ranch-Style beans
  • 2 cans of tomato sauce
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • A whole bunch of chili powder
Throw it all in a pot, let it cook for an hour, and you've got yourself some delicious homemade chili!
Now add some Fritos to the bottom of a bowl, pour your chili, dump your choice of shredded cheese on top, and enjoy some Frito Pie!
Easy, delicious, and full of big flavors. Just how we like it in the south!
