Fancy Frito Pie
“My Fancy Frito Pie is just a rendition of the traditional,” says Chef David Bull. “Obviously, the chili is the most important part. I have made it with venison and even veal.” Tip: To make lime-flavored sour cream, just mix a few drops of lime juice with a tablespoon of sour cream.“
Slit bag open, and pour hot chili over Fritos. Sprinkle cheese over chili, and top with jalapeño slices, cilantro, lime-flavored sour cream, and Tobacco Onions.
Heat oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat to 350 degrees. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl; add onions, and toss. Shake off excess dry mix, and fry rings, a few at a time, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and keep warm until serving.
