The ULTIMATE Frito Pie

Prep Time: 15 mins / cook time: 25 mins / serves: 6-8

Let's be real - how could you not love Frito pie? It's just a few simple ingredients, but they come together to make the most addictingly delicious pie/casserole/concoction that keeps you coming back for more. Making our Two-Step Chili will cut out a lot of steps, and make the whole thing come together in the blink of an eye. The reason we've deemed it the ULTIMATE Frito Pie is the addition of jalapeno sausage - something you didn't know your Frito pie was missing. So throw those Fritos in your grocery cart and get ready for the ultimate weeknight dinner!
