Recipe: Oven Baked Frito Pie

Tonight I tried another new recipe I found on Pinterest.  To see the linked post head on over to Pearls, Handcuffs, & Happy Hour.  It was good, quick, and easy, which is definitely a plus when fixing dinner during the week.

Here is what you'll need to make Oven Baked Frito Pie:

1 lb. ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1 16 oz. can pinto beans
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes (I used Rotel Chili Fixins')
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 1/2 cups Fritos
1 1/4 cup sour cream (I used light)

Preheat oven to 350.  Brown the meat and drain it.  Return meat back to the pan and add the beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, 1/4 cup of cheese, and taco seasoning.

Stir until everything is well mixed.  Spread 1 cup of Fritos on the bottom of a greased baking dish (8 x 8 or 9 x 13).  Spread all of the chili on top of Fritos.

Bake for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Spread sour cream on top of chili.

Cover with remaining chips and cheese.

Put back in the oven and bake for an additional 4-5 minutes. You may want to cover with foil before placing back in the oven if you don't want your cheese to get crispy.

Serve and enjoy a nice warm meal!
