Individual Fritos® Pies, Wisconsin-Style

Individual Fritos Pies


  • 4 1/2 cups traditional size corn chips, such as Fritos®
  • 3 1/2 cups (14 ounces) Wisconsin Colby cheese or Wisconsin cheddar cheese (or use these in a mixture with Wisconsin Monterey jack cheese), shredded
  • 3/4 cups thinly sliced green onions (scallions)
  • 4 1/2 cups chili con carne with beans, homemade or canned
  • 3/4 cups sliced fresh or pickled jalapeño chiles, mild or hot, or a mixture
  • Salsa, shredded lettuce, cilantro, chiles, and sour cream for garnish, optional


  1. Choose six microwaveable dishes, about 5 inches in diameter and 2 1/2 inches deep, such as cereal bowls or large custard cups. In each, layer as follows, spreading each ingredient evenly in the bowls:

    1/2 cup corn chips
    1/3 cup shredded cheese
    2 tablespoons sliced green onion
    3/4 cup chili
    1/4 cup corn chips
    2 tablespoons sliced jalapeño chiles
    1/4 cup shredded cheese

  2. Microwave each pie on high for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until the chili is heated through and the cheese melts.
  3. Top each serving with a spoonful or two of your favorite salsa. Eat with a spoon.

Yield: 6 servings

For conventional oven: Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
