In the world of skillet meals, this Skillet Fritos Chili Pie is currently at the top of my list.
You guys, this is so simple to make and crazy delicious. I don’t think I’ve ever seen my boys inhale something so fast!
This Fritos pie is packed with flavor and is most definitely comfort food at its finest!
Crunchy, salty corn chips, melty cheese and a flavor-packed cream cheese layer take chili to a whole new level.
There are so many reasons to love this Skillet Fritos Chili Pie:
- Adding crunchy Fritos to pretty much anything is a game changer.
- This Fritos chili pie combines so many flavors and textures. It’s crunchy, cheesy, slightly spicy. . . a little bit of everything.
- It’s a quick and easy meal made in a skillet!
- It’s equally delicious on a chilly fall night or a hot summer evening.
Most Fritos pie recipes I’ve seen call for canned chili, but with this recipe, you make a basic, simple homemade chili that is so good.
Now let’s talk about the cream cheese mixture you plop on top of this pie.
It’s cream cheese, sour cream and dry ranch dressing mix and it’s definitely the star of the show here. It adds a creaminess and amazing flavor to this pie and takes it to a whole other level.
Now of course, the Fritos are also the star here. The saltiness and crunch they add just make this pie even more amazing. Like I said before, my boys literally inhaled this and probably would have each eaten the entire pan on their own if they could have. They would have had to fight me first for it though.
