Southwestern Frito Pie

Uhh its been a couple of those days where I have worked everyday and all weekend long. When I work all weekend long and come Monday morning, my house looks like I had a football team in here and they ransacked it. In other words, its a complete disaster and it takes me 2 days to clean it back up! Nothing at all against hubs, he does a fantastic job with the girls and trying to keep the house picked up by the time I get home, but ya know there is something about the way you, yourself, cleans up your house, its done a certain way. In my case its like that anyways. And my girls are high maintenance so it makes it a little harder to keep everything up! So I'm a couple of days behind on here so it catch up time today!

I came across this recipe last week on Pam's Midwest Kitchen Korner (hers is called Mexi Dinner) so she is the total inspiration for this recipe and the idea behind it! I love how she put it in the crock pot to warm it up! It was super quick and easy! (She has some great recipes, you should check her out!) I added a couple of more ingredients to it and by the time it was done it was kinda like a Southwestern Frito Pie. And y'all know me and Frito Pie, or Cheese-It Pie---MMmm...So that's what I named it since it was a little different and had that kinda of sense to it!

Here goes...

1 lb ground turkey, cooked and drained
1 (19 oun) can medium (or mild) enchilada sauce
1 (8 oun) can tomato sauce
1 (10 oun) can Rotel
1 (15 oun) can corn, drained
1 (15 oun) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup water(or less if you want it thicker)
1/2 tbs garlic powder
1/2 tbs "Tony" creole seasoning
1/2 tsp oregano
1 cup shredded cheese (plus more for topping, if you like!)

Cook you ground turkey (or beef). Spray the inside of your crock pot. Add all your ingredients and stir. Cook on low for 2 hours. Serve with Frito's and whatever toppings you like. I used more cheese (Duh!), sour cream and jalapenos!

So give this one a try its another one of those cozy Fall meals that hits the spot!

Happy Tuesday!
(I'm gonna go dig in some more of this cleaning...Uhhhh!)



  1. I love this recipe. I'm all for using the crockpot on autumn days. And Fritos are a gluten-free friendly food so this is definitely something we'll try. Thanks for commenting over on my blog. We must be twins separated at birth we have so much in common. Make sure to post pics of your pumpkins.

  2. I think it's great that even in the busyness of life and the messyness that our families bring.... you made such a great dish! Love this. Have a super night.

  3. Oh yum! This would be great football watching food! And I know what you mean about cleaning up your own house. I'm the same way. I have my own way of doing it and I appreciate the help but just leave me alone so I can get to it, lol.

  4. As soon as I saw the words Frito and pie I knew it had to be good!

  5. Fritos are so surprisingly good, especially with a chili "dip". Thanks for sharing!
