It is too hot to even pretend like I want to cook. After awhile a girl gets tired of sandwiches. This is when I start getting creative with my microwave. One of my favorite microwave dishes is Frito Pie. I know some of you northerners have no earthly clue what I'm talking about. Well trust me, Frito Pie is a Texas/ Southern delicacy...
1 can of Chili
1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese
1 large bag of fritos
First put chili in a microwave safe bowl and microwave COVERED for 3 minutes.
The goal is to warm the chili up.
Next in a casserole dish put down a layer of fritos, enough to cover the bottom of the dish
Then put down a layer of the warmed chili
Then put down a layer of cheese
Repeat until you have 2-3 layers of each item
next put back in the microwave for 1 minutes, just enough to melt the cheese on the top layer...
Serve as you would a casserole dish, and enjoy!
You can top your frito pie with green or white diced onions, sour cream, or whatever else your heart desires!
A one layer frito pie.
