I assure you, this is not a calorie friendly recipe. I am going to pretend I invented it b/c I've never seen anything like it, but....in a world this big, I have no doubt it's been done before! Basically, I decided to solve my bread to chili ratio. When I eat chili of any sort-I have to do a lot of running, but it's worth it to consume those delicious calories. I also realize that frito pie is a staple in the south and a little more foreign in other parts of the country....world, but man, if you only knew! So....I had all the makings for chili, but I also had some pie dough that was about to go bad. I used a hodge podge of stuff from my kitchen and....yum.
I took a ramekin and just put some crushed fritoes (just enough to cover the bottom) to help the bottom of the pie from being too 'wet.' Not necessary, but I had a mini bag of chips so....who doesn't want fritoes with their chili?
