Out of time to make dinner or just looking for a fun dish to serve? This Sunday dinner recipe for Fritos skillet pie is a favorite, and no wonder: Fritos are one of the main ingredients!

This might not be the healthiest meal you'll serve, but it's fun to make every once in a while. To help ease my mind a little, I used my favorite vegetarian chili, served plenty of veggie toppings and a fresh green salad on the side.

Fritos skillet pie recipe

Serves 6


  • 3 cups Fritos corn chips
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans chili (your favorite)
  • 6 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional garnishes: diced tomato, diced green onions, shredded lettuce, diced avocado, sour cream


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Add the corn chips to the bottom of a 10-inch cast iron skillet (you could also use a baking dish). Spoon the chili evenly over the chips.
  3. Top with the cheese (I added diced green onion to mine prior to adding the cheese).
  4. Place the skillet in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the chili begins to bubble up.
  5. Carefully remove from the oven and serve in individual bowls topped with your favorite garnishes.
