Chili Frito Pie

I was in the grocery store the other day and was walking down the chips and soda aisle. My eye caught a bag of Frito chips and I suddenly remembered seeing several recipes on line for a Chili Frito Pie. So I quickly scanned through some recipes on my phone and compiled them all to come up with this tasty dish. You can really get creative with this if you want to add more ingredients like peppers, onions, tomatoes, etc. Hope you enjoy! To print recipe, click here: Chili Frito Pie
1 lb. ground beef
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 -2 tablespoons taco seasoning
1 can chili - your choice
1/2 can sliced black olives
1 can crescent rolls
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons green onions, chopped
1 1/2 cups finely shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups crushed corn chips
1) Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
2) In a large skillet, add the ground beef, onion powder and taco seasoning. Cook until no longer pink. Drain and return to the pan.

3) Add the chili and black olives. Simmer 5 minutes.

4) Separate the crescent rolls into triangles and lay them in a greased 9" pie dish, placing the points toward the center of the dish. Press the seams together to seal, forming the crust. I purchased the big and flaky crescent rolls, so I kind of had to cut a few into pieces and then press them all together to form the crust throughout the whole dish.

5) Bake the crescent roll pie in the oven for about 5 minutes. Then remove and set aside.

6) Spread about 1 cup of the crushed corn chips onto the crust.

7) Spoon meat mix over the top of the corn chips and spread evenly.

8) Stir sour cream in a separate bowl and then mix in the green onions.

9) Spread the sour cream mixture evenly over meat.

10) Top with shredded cheese.

11)  Then top with the remaining 1 cup of crushed corn chips.

12) Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. **Excuse the burnt crust on the right side of the pie. I am still getting used to the appliances at our new home and realized that the back of our oven is hotter than the front!**

13) Let rest for about 10 minutes before slicing and ENJOY!
