Comfort  Food Classic:  Chili Frito Pie


Some days call for comfort food and for this southern girl there is no greater comfort food on the planet (in my humble opinion) than a gigantic bowl of Chili Frito Pie!

Talk about hit the spot delicious; crunchy salty corn chips, homemade chili, rice and cheese - totally swoon worthy!

My west coast take on the southern classic has layers of Mexican green rice, fire roasted chili, cilantro and lots of lime wedges on the side.

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!

Ingredients: – corn chips – Mexican green rice (recipe on the blog) – homemade chili to serve – cilantro leaves – shredded sharp cheddar – finely chopped onions – lime wedges – Optional, but also delicious: avocado, sour cream, green onions, pipits

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