Philly Cheesesteak Frito Pie is a fun twist on the southern dish, Frito Chili Pie. Ground beef, bell peppers, onions and mushrooms are cooked together and served over Fritos, topped with a creamy provolone sauce for one easy and epic recipe!
This Spicy Frito Chili Pie Recipe is a twist on the Sonic favorite with added cayenne pepper & green chilies, topped with cheddar cheese and diced tomatoes!
Sometimes all I want to eat is a down-home, feel-good, Oklahoma meal that reminds me of home, and last night was one of those nights!
I always loved Frito Chili Pie growing up. Whether we would make it at home or eat it at Sonic it was always a favorite of mine.
I took the traditional Frito Chili Pie recipe and kicked it up a notch (or maybe three) to create this spicy version of a classic favorite!
1 lb ground beef
1/2 red onion (chopped)
1 large garlic clove (minced)
1 4 oz can diced green chilies
1 15 oz can chili beans
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
1 bag (9.75 oz) corn chips (AKA Fritos)
Add the ground beef, onions and garlic to a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook for 7-8 minutes or until the beef is cooked through.
Drain any grease from the skillet, then add the chili beans and green chilies.
Mix together well, then add all of the spices.
Allow to cook for 5-7 minutes.
While the meat and beans are soaking in the spices, arrange the corn chips on a plate. Once the chili pie mixture is ready, spoon it on top of the corn chips. Top with cheddar cheese while the chili mixture is still hot so that the cheese will melt in.
I also topped it with a little arugula and tomatoes to calm the spiciness of the chili mix!
