Cooking at home doesn’t always need to be a big production. In fact, I don’t think it’s possible to make a big elaborate meal every night. I mean I guess impossible might be a bit of an overstatement, but it is impractical at the least. So this week I did a easy meal. Welcome to Frito Pie.
All you need is chili, fritos, salsa, a bit of lettuce, and cottage cheese. At least how I make it. The nice thing about this recipe is it could be more elaborate say if you wanted to make your own chili, or it is flexible to other changes you see fit. Maybe you’d prefer a cheddar cheese instead of cottage cheese, or something else like that. Personally, I feel that my version of Frito Pie is the ultimate sweet spot, but to each their own. Make it yours, go crazy.
So I used a can of Amy’s vegetarian chili. Really the only preparation for this meal was heating up the chili and cutting up a bit of lettuce. Then you just layer it all together.
Fritos, chili, lettuce, cottage chesse, salsa. Mix together and enjoy.
