Next up:

APRIL’S LOUISIANA FRITO PIE
[emphasis on FRITOS mine]
1 large bag Fritos corn chips
1 large can Chile con Carne
2 cans stewed tomatoes
1 can black olives
1 can green chiles (optional)
2 cans whole kernel corn
1 block cheddar cheese, grated
Toppers (optional):
sour cream
guacamole
Pour the bag of Fritos into a 9×11 baking dish and set aside.

Place the rest of the ingredients, (including the juice from the corn only), except cheese, in a pot.

Heat thoroughly.

Pour on top of Fritos.

Cover top of chile mixture with cheese and bake in a 350°F oven until cheese is melted.

Top with a dollop of sour cream on each serving and Enjoy!

This is similar to a tamale pie.

Goes great with Spanish Rice and a green salad, but can be served just as a meal alone.

Note: Get creative! Change this recipe and make it your own.Try adding green onions, sautéed onions, cooked ground beef, etc.

Enjoy!
