I like to make a big batch of chili for dinner one night then use the leftovers for Chili Frito Pie a few nights later. It’s two totally different meals that my family can’t get enough of!



  • 2 cups corn chips, Frito’s and Trader Joe’s brands are gluten free
  • 1 batch Mexican green rice, recipe follows or Mexican Red Rice
  • 4 cuphomemade chili

To serve

  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese or jalapeño jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • lime wedges
  • Optional, but also delicious: avocado, sour cream, green onions, pipits


  1. Divide the corn chips between 4 serving bowls. Layer each bowl with Mexican green rice, chili, and toppings of choice. Serve immediately.
