Baked Frito Pie

My family is big on tacos. Seriously!! Even my picky little eaters gobble them down like candy. It's probably the only food that I know they will eat time and time again. But as much as I love taco night, the best part is mixing the leftovers with Fritos and having some good ol' Frito pie for lunch the next day. This Frito pie recipe is AMAZING and the best part is that you don't have to wait to have leftovers to make it!

This dish is sloppy and it's not a very pretty so taking good pictures was a little difficult. Despite it's looks, it is DELICIOUS!!

  • 1 lb. lean ground  beef
  • 1 large bag of Fritos
  • 1 {16oz.} can refried beans (original recipe calls for pinto beans but I didn't have any and we usually have refried bean with our tacos anyways.)
  • 1 {8oz.} can tomato sauce
  • 1 {15oz.} can diced tomatoes
  • 1 pkg. taco seasoning
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese. 
  • 1 cup sour cream 
  • Chopped tomatoes (optional)
  • Lettuce (optional)

  1. In a large skillet, brown meat. Once it's brown drain the grease.
  2. To the skillet, add refried beans, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, taco seasoning, and a handful of shredded cheese. Continue cooking until warm
  3. Place half the bag of Fritos in the bottom of baking pan.
  4. Spread your meat mixture over the Fritos then popped it in the oven at 350* for 20 minutes.
  5. After 20 minutes take it out of the oven, spread thick layer of sour cream over the top then add another layer of Fritos and finally covered the entire thing with cheese.
  6. Pop the dish back in the oven for a few for minutes to let the cheese melt.
  7. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes.
  8. Top with chopped tomatoes and lettuce (not everyone in my family likes tomatoes and lettuce so we usually add them to each individual serving)
