Thoughts
This was good, easy and quick to make. I had some green onions but decided not to add them to the top. I want to make it again and will add them. It made too much for two people so the next time I’ll leave the corn chips out and freeze the leftovers. I can add the corn chips to the top when I reheat it or just eat them on the side if I want.

This is a good recipe when you don’t have a lot of time to cook. It took me a little under 40 minutes.

  1. That looks like a pretty classic low-effort meal with lots of strong flavors!

    best… mae at maefood.blogspot.com

  2. A definite favorite with my sons when they were young!

  3. I like these kinds of meals for those days (as you said) when you don’t have time or are just low energy.

  4. I like this version! Copying your recipe now. Thanks for your nice comments about our trip to Omaha. I appreciate you.

    • I hope you guys like it!

      You’re welcome, it makes me happy when I see that someone got to spend time with loved ones they haven’t seen in a long time!

  5. I used to love Fritos! I can get tortilla chips now, but not Fritos.

    This looks like a versatile recipe–easily adapted for various tastes! Nice!

  6. Fritos, I can taste them but haven’t had them in years.

  7. Yum! My mom used to make this for us back in the 70s.

  8. You always need to have a recipe or two like this in your repertoire. There are days when nothing else will do!

  9. I love Fritos and this is such a unique way of using them. Bet it tasted great.

  10. We have a Pork Nachos recipe that we make regularly which has a similar feel but it has many hidden vegetables in it and then it is studded with the corn chips and topped with cheese.

    Thanks for your participation in Weekend Cooking!

  11. I almost always make mine with just Hormel chili no beans but your recipe sounds really good and I’m excited to try it! Just need to drag myself out to the grocery one of these days…sigh…Thanks for sharing!!!!

  12. I’ve heard of this but never had it. It looks yummy!

  13. At youth group, they sometimes have walking tacos which is a bag of Fritos that you plop taco ingredients over and then eat with a fork. Sounds like the same thing. The kids love it and I have to say, it’s pretty tasty.
