Frito Pie

When Becky and I were in college one of the organizations we were in would host a walking taco night every semester as a mixer to help introduce new members to the current members. If you're unfamiliar with a walking taco, it's a snack size bag of fritos with taco toppings mixed into it, then you eat it with a fork. This is a walking taco in a bowl, we ate it as an appetizer, but this would also be perfect for a snack.


Taco Toppings (you can use whatever you like, these are the toppings we used)
-Sour Cream
-Diced Tomatoes
-Sliced Jalapenos
-Nacho Cheese 
The base of the Frito Pie is the fritos, then add the chili, topped with the nacho cheese  and all other toppings.
Eat with a fork.

Sometimes you just need comfort food and frito pie is a nice option. I really enjoy mac and cheese and pizza, but sometimes you want comfort food and you want it right now. Frito pie takes less than five minutes (or however long it takes to heat up your chili, mine took about four minutes). Delicious and simple. This is also perfect because you make your own individual dish so you can have as much or as little as you want.
