Chili Cheese Frito Casserole.

Until I made this chili cheese frito casserole last night, I had no idea what we have been missing! This is really pretty quick to whip up, and makes for a nice hearty meal!

Adam is a huge fan of frito chili cheese pies, so I thought this could be a recipe he would enjoy a lot. It doesn’t taste fully like a classic frito chili pie/walking taco. I didn’t want to give anyone the impression this is going to taste exactly like it. But it is similar on flavor and equally good.

Adam had gotten off a little early yesterday so he was spending time with Clay and letting me get a few things done around the house and get supper around.

I was taking pictures of supper for this post and Adam and Clay wanted to get in on the action and get a picture together! It turned out so good, you can truly see the love between these two! 

I had told Adam this meal is easy enough that he might be able to cook it! Haha, he doesn’t really cook at all except for the grill, so finding meals that are simple are right up his alley!

As you can see it is packed full of meat, beans, tomatoes, cheese and more. I love the layer of sour cream on top, it adds a really nice flavor to the mix! Plus it has two layers of chips, and you can always add more chips for the crunch you desire.

You can split this up and freeze half of the meat mixture to make for two different meals, but Adam loves his meat so we made it one jam packed meaty and hearty casserole!

    Wow, what a great idea! There’s only one person in my house that likes Frito’s, so we buy a bag and have to figure out how to include it in different recipes.

    This reminds me so much of my childhood! I wonder which meals my children will feel nostalgic towards. Hopefully not the drive-thru. Time to make some memories in the kitchen.
