Leftover Magic: Frito Pie

The wife made chili Saturday night, and there were about two bowls leftover in the fridge. I decided I would make the kids one of my favorite foods from college with the leftovers. It seems like a guilty pleasure, but Fritos are actually pretty healthy compared to other snack chips, and using the homemade chili meant I didn't need to worry about high fat or strange preservatives.

Frito Pie. A Frito crust, a fair bit of leftover chili, and a pound or so of cheddar cheese later, Frito Pie was ready for the oven. After it baked at 350 for 45 minutes in a deep casserole pan, dinner was served.

It disappeared too quick for pictures, but it was perfect for a cold rainy Oregon evening.
