Crockpot Frito Pie


I’m happy to be sharing with you a recipe I prepared today, that’s not on Pinterest (well besides the salmon cake sandwiches), but other than that, all of the 51 recipes I have made came from Pinterest. Lol, as you can tell, I’m addicted to the social media site. You are probably thinking geez girl, have you ever thought of picking up a thing called a cookbook and or why do you oppose to using one?

To clarify your thoughts yes, of course, I actually have convinced myself to use one haha, 😀 and no I don’t have anything against using cookbooks it’s just that since I’m social media geek, I’ve realized I have a huge habit of depending on Pinterest for my cooking inspiration lol. However, for those of you who often prefer working with cookbooks instead of social media, I support you 100% all the way. 🙂 🙂

Furthermore, like I said earlier, I decided to do something a little different in using an actual cookbook instead of my regular go-to spot.
I found this Crockpot Frito Pie recipe in an all crockpot recipe cookbook (in which of course, I certainly will be using more frequently) that was given to me last Christmas from my Aunt.

Now onto finally talking about today’s recipe; Whenever I think about Frito Pie, my mouth begins to go crazy for it. And evidently here’s why: it’s somewhat messy, fun to eat, Crunchy, Salty chips smothered in all sorts of tasty additions… there’s just no WAY to go wrong with this family-friendly favorite.

Do you have a favorite cookbook?

Crockpot Frito Pie

Ingredients

1 lb ground turkey or beef

1/2 sweet onion

1 can stewed tomatoes

1 package of chili seasoning

Fritos

Optional:

Sour Cream

Shredded cheese

Black olives

Directions:

1. Chop an onion using either a knife and or a food processor. Next, pour a few drops of olive oil into a large skillet along with the onion and meat. Cook over medium-high heat. And cook until it’s no longer pink. Drain grease.

2. Throw in meat and onion mixture into a 4-qt slow cooker. Next, combine the stewed tomatoes, pork and beans, and the chili seasoning. Stir well. Cover and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours.

3. After finished cooking, place Fritos in the bottom of a bowl, cover with chili and add toppings. Yummoelicious! 😀

Cooking tip: If you have sensitive eyes and always end up crying cutting up an onion I recommend wearing goggles lol. You will look funny but trust me it helps. 🙂
