Appetizers » Frito Pie
There is question whether the Frito Pie — a popular snack at sporting events or carnivals — originated in Texas, or New Mexico. Amanda Escamilla (a native Texan), is diplomatic about the debate, but we know where she stands. Regardless, Frito Pie is a snack in which you have not lived until you've tried. A small bag of Fritos® is cut open on the side (these steps are very specific, so watch Amanda's technique carefully) and mounded with meaty, flavorful chili, cheese and onion. Not much more to be said.
