    I've been craving this all week; since my sister told me she was having it for her lunch last weekend. I've got to buy the stuff for it this week.

    We just did this for my daughter's sweet sixteenth birthday party. All the kids thought I was the smartest mom on the block for thinking up "frito pie". I had to laugh because this is something we used to do when I was a kid. The kids had a blast adding all the various mix-ins to the basic fritos and chili and cheese. I had sour cream, jalapenos, crumbled bacon, slivered green onions, chopped tomatoes, pickled red onions, diced white onions, monterey jack cheese/cheddar cheese and slivered banana peppers.
    We also had a huge pan of macaroni and cheese and let everyone scoop their own bowl of mac-n-cheese and add mix-ins as they wish. My daughter has several vegetarian friends and they wouldn't eat the chili, so they had their own varaiation. It was a huge success. Long live, FRITO Pie.

    Why didn't I ever think to do that? We love fritos, cheese, onions and sour cream on our chili and this is a fun variation of having it in the bowl - I love it! I would be perfect for our tailates, too. We do a similar thing called "Walking Tacos", using a slit individual size bag of Doritos, taco meat, and any "toppers" you want to add - fold over the top of the bag, shake it up, grab a fork and dig in. Next time I make chili, I am definitely going to try your "walking chili"!
