Football: Frito Pie Packs

I went to Santa Fe, New Mexico four years ago, and while on the old square, I stopped at this little five and dime store that served frito the individual frito bags.  I've wanted to try this out, and what perfect timing-football season!  Chili is a must have at a good game watching, and I love the idea of a frito pie pack bar-chili+add a bowl of onions, shredded cheese, and individual frito packs, and you can pour the goods right in the bag over the fritos.  Dig it out with a fork in front of a tv with friends.  It saves the whole dish clean up thing.

A nod back to my youth camp days! Oh! This made me hungry. Great idea, and you're right: fewer dishes to wash! Yum!
