Aficionados of this simple dish range from those who prefer to slit open a small bag of Fritos lengthwise and use the bag itself as the bowl to those who top the traditional mix with chopped tomatoes, grated carrot, and/or sprouts. As to whether or not the chili should have beans-always a delicate subject-you’re on your own.
Yield: 2 servings.
2 c. small Fritos
2 (15-oz.) cans Wolf Brand chili
shredded cheddar cheese
Place 1 c. Fritos into each of 2 soup or cereal bowls. Heat chili in a small saucepan, pour over Fritos, and top with shredded cheese and onions.
