Reviews forFrito Pie
"I was able to find the ranch beans amazingly enough. This is an easy recipe to make and the gang loved it. I agree that 2 cans of sauce is too much. What really made this recipe was all the stuff we garnished with. It's not the most healthy so I guess I'd reserve it for emergencies (who can keep Fritos around though??!!) or if I needed to feed a bunch of guys or teenagers."
"I couldn't find Ranch Beans, so I used chili Beans. Two cans of enchilada sauce was too much. It was very soupy. Would have been better as a dip, without the fritos on the bottom of the pan. Definitely not a main meal dish for my house."
"I was looking for something to use up some hamburger meat. I had everything. I am glad I tried it. It was so easy a really flavorful."
"Made this tonight. I used one can of beans as two seemed like too much. One was perfect for us. I couldn't find ranch beans so I used Bush's chili beans (tasted good). I spiced it up a bit with cayenne pepper and some garlic. I was skeptical about using two cans of enchilada sauce because it seemed like it would turn out too soupy but it didn't. It firmed up as it cooled down. Served with sour cream and green onions. It was tasty. I like the saltiness that the Fritos added. Wasn't too overpowering. You don't need to add any salt. Overall a pretty decent and easy recipe."
