Easy Frito Pie


  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 3 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 41/2 cups corn chips (I use Fritos)
  • 11/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 6 Tbsp finely chopped red onion
  • Sour cream and minced fresh cilantro, optional


  1. In a large pot, brown beef until fully cooked; drain.
  2. Stir in the chili powder, flour, salt and garlic powder until blended; gradually stir in water.
  3. Add the beans and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 12-15 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.
  4. To serve, divide chips among six serving bowls. Top with beef mixture followed by cheese, tomatoes and onion; garnish with sour cream and cilantro, if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
