My Frito Pie

2014-10-17 18.02.37

I’m from Texas and grew up eating Frito Pie. The one I make today is healthier, but it remains an easy and crowd pleasing dish. What you will need:

Bag of Fritos, preferably the smaller sized Fritos, but any will do

1 can red beans, drained and rinsed

1 jar salsa

1 can black olives, olives drained and sliced into circles

Butter lettuce, torn into bite size pieces

2 tomatoes, seeds removed and diced

Vegan sour cream

Faux taco meat, I used a gluten-free mix that will get a review on Thursday

In a skillet, prepare faux taco meat according to package directions. Add red beans and a cup of salsa. Cook until warmed through. Layer plates with Fritos, faux taco meat mix, additional salsa if desired, lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes, and olives. Dig in. Yummers!
