Friday Night Lights Frito Pie
Friday Night Lights Frito Pie

Time to cook: 1 hrs. 30 mins.




Step 1
Heat a large nonstick skillet over MEDIUM heat until hot. Add Ground Beef and cook 8-10 minutes, breaking beef into small crumbles and stirring occasionally. Remove the beef and set aside to drain.

Step 2
Add olive oil and onion to skillet; cook until nicely browned.

Step 3
Add ground beef back in, along with garlic, chili powder, cayenne, cumin and salt. Stir to combine.

Step 4
Add in the beer, diced tomatoes and green chilies, and tomato sauce, then bring to a low simmer. Cover with a lid and allow to bubble and simmer so sauce reduces and thickens, and the flavors intensify, about 1 hour.

Step 5
After an hour, stir through the cornmeal which will help to thicken the sauce. If sauce starts to get too thick, add a little water, and if it’s not yet thick enough, continue to simmer until desired consistency is reached.

Step 6
Slice or fold open the bags, and spoon the chili on top of the corn chips. Then top each bag with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese. Allow to melt slightly, then serve and enjoy.
