Cheese-It Pie

I'm a stickler for a good Frito Pie, but I always forget to buy Frito's. It's a major problem!  I was searching for something to eat for lunch yesterday, I get tired of the same ole sandwiches and salads and I saw a can of Hormel turkey chili in my pantry, so I start scanning to see if I had some Frito's. Nope, of course, my luck. But then I saw a box of Cheese-Its. I know it sounds really odd, but I heart Cheese-Its out of any other crackers. When I make chili I eat it with saltine crackers so then why couldn't I eat it with Cheese-It's? I can! So here's what I did-(This is embarrassingly easy!)

Crushed up some Cheese-Its and put it in a bowl
Microwaved half a can of Hormel turkey chili
Grated some cheese
Poured the chili over the Cheese-It's and topped it with cheese and jalapenos

It was so dang good!

So now I know I have a back up for any time I don't have any Frito's and am craving a Frito pie. Try this one if your desperate like I was!

I now heart Cheese-It Pie...
