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 jalapeño. They were a huge hit!
Chili Cheese Stuffed Fritos
approximately 48 stuffed Fritos
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 package chili seasoning (Chili-o)
- 1 Tbsp dried minced onions
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 bags Scoops Fritos
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.
Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. Top with sour cream and jalapeños, if desired.
