Oh meeyomiyo!  Frito® pie-O!

Finally someone’s come out with organic Frito® style corn chips!  Can you tell I’m excited?  I’ve been waiting for this product for years and Central Market has delivered the goods in both yellow and blue corn varieties.  At $2.29 per 8 ounce bag, most any non-cook can feed the family a fast, super easy and fun Frito® pie meal.  We used Amy’s organic canned vegetarian chili–our favorite is the medium black bean and we also enjoy the southwestern black bean.  It usually goes for $2.99 a can but more than once I’ve found it on sale at Whole Foods for $2.69–a good price for stocking up for a road trip ’cause it makes nutritious and tasty survival food.


Do we even need a recipe?  Put some corn chips in a bowl.  Heat up your chili.  Plop some onto your chipsTop it off with  shredded cheese–we like Full Quiver Farms cheddar (Sunset Valley Farmers Market) and Brazos Valley (Austin Farmers Market) offers several compatible flavors.  Sophisticate it with chopped onion–plenty of 1015’s, organic reds and green onions are available right now–and spice it with chopped chiles, if you have time.  Now kick back and gobble like you’re hangin’ at the state fair!
