Frito Pie

By Karly – Buns In My Oven
6 servings


1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium sweet onion diced
2 cloves garlic minced
1 packet taco seasoning
1 tablespoon chili powder
15 ounces canned pinto beans drained
10 ounces Ro*Tel
10 ounces enchilada sauce
8 ounces canned corn drained
9 ounces Fritos
2 cups shredded cheddar
Green onions, sour cream, sliced jalapenos for serving


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ground beef and cook, crumbling the meat as it browns. Once beef is broken up, add the onions and continue cooking until beef is cooked through and onions have softened.

Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

Add the taco seasoning, chili powder, and 1/4 cup of water. Stir well to combine.

Add the beans, Ro*Tel, enchilada sauce, and corn to the skillet and stir well to combine.

Arrange half of the Fritos in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. Pour the beef mixture over the top. Sprinkle with the cheddar and remaining Fritos.

Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.

Serve with green onions, sour cream, and sliced jalapenos.

Tips and Notes:

Swap out mild Ro*Tel or salsa to cut back on the spice.

Leave the beans or corn out entirely, if they’re not to your tastes.

We prefer this recipe made with ground beef, but ground turkey may also be used.
