Chili Cheese Stuffed Fritos {Football Friday}


For me, my bowl chili isn't complete until I crush up some Fritos on top. I needed a tailgating dish for the game last weekend, and I thought how about bake the chili right in Fritos - LOVE!

These are really more like chili seasoned meatballs than actual chili. I didn't want any of the chili to fall out of the Fritos when I served this. You will want to use a lean ground beef because the Fritos are pretty greasy on their own. Also, make sure you buy the Scoop Fritos and not  regular Fritos. The regular Fritos are not big enough for this.

You can stuff the Fritos ahead of time and keep them refrigerated until you are ready to bake and serve them. I topped our Chili Cheese Stuffed Fritos with some sour cream and a jalapeƱo. They were a huge hit!





Chili Cheese Stuffed Fritos
approximately 48 stuffed Fritos
(Printable Recipe)


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 package chili seasoning (Chili-o)
  • 1 Tbsp dried minced onions
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine ground beef, chili seasoning, onion, and cheese.

Pick out the best unbroken Scoops Fritos. Stuff about 1 tablespoon of the meat mixture into each Frito.

    1. No, I'm not up this early. I schedule my posts to go up the night before. Now, I have been known to stay up that late reading a book. LOL!

  7. I know this is probably a stupid question....do you brown the meat before combining? or mix all and let the beef cook during the trip to the oven....Thanks!

    1. Don't cook the meat first. It will bake in the Fritos. Enjoy!!

  9. We have always done this with taco seasoning, I'll have to give the chili seasoning a try too. Love these things.
