    This sounds like a great casserole, but it should be named corn chip casserole or something. Frito Pie is an actual classic recipe that was invented by Mrs. Daisy Dean Doolin of Texas, although some in New Mexico think it was invented in Woolworth's in Santa Fe, where it became famous. They served it until the store closed in 1997. The original was to open a 1.75 ounce bag of Fritos corn chips and pour 1/2 cup chili, 1/4 cup shredded cheese, 1 tablespoon chopped onion and a couple of jalapeno slices and eat it out of the bag. It is still menued this way in some Texas cafes. I posted this recipe and one friend hosted a party for a teens birthday and served this and it was a hit. The bag trick isn't family friendly and your Corn Chip Casserole sounds great.
