Frito Pie Mexican Style
Easy and low fat. I didn't actually add up the fat but everything I used was reduced fat or low fat. So I'm going to call this healthy. Of course you don't need to use the lowfat foods but I have used them for so long I don't notice a taste difference.
Living in Texas I have heard so much about Frito Pie. I'm sure the original version which is just chili and cheese over Frito's is fantastic but I love refried beans so I came up with this version. It took me less than a half hour to make from beginning until I could eat. It did make more than I wanted so next time I will cut the recipe in half. But this one will give me lunch tomorrow.
2 cups Frito corn chips - Reduced salt if desired. I recommend this because it is pretty salty.
1 can refried beans - reduced fat
1/4 cup salsa
1/2 pound lean ground beef or turkey
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups light cheddar cheese
Light sour cream
Place one cup of chips into casserole. You can crush them if desired. (I'm going to next time I make this.)
Garnish with whatever toppings you desire.
And just for fun check out this very old commercial.
