Cheesy Chili

Hot Chili Frito Casserole

Hot Chili Frito Casserole is a great easy meal when you are short on time and really don’t want to spend time cooking. A good meal for the family. Only three ingredients

I hadn’t made this casserole in the oven before. Usually, I make it with one can of chili in a bowl with the chips and cheese and microwave. That is a fast way to make this and also if it is for one person.

Depending on how big your family is you can always add more chili or chips. I only made one layer of this but if you wanted to you could make two layers.

Fritos

The first step is layering the bottom of the casserole dish with Frito’s. I used the whole Frito bag. You can use more or less it really is up to you.

Chili

I used 2 cans of Hormel Chili to use for the second layer. Spreading flat on top of the Fritos.

Cheesy Chili

The next layer and the best part of the whole casserole is the cheese. I used packaged shredded cheese

Next is putting the casserole dish in the oven on 350 degrees for 15 minutes. When I tasted this it was barely warm and I really like my chili hot so next time I may add the cheese after I’ cook the chili for the 15 minutes. Then put the layer of cheese until it melts or until hot.

This is the last of this yummy food. I forgot to show a picture of it when it was done. We were hungry and it smelled so good. You can also have a side salad and biscuits to go with this great casserole.

  • 2 cans Nalley Chili
  • Frito
  • Shredded cheese

Put in oven on 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Drop me a line if you have any ideas on how to make this even better.

  1. This looks really good and with only three ingredients you can whip it up in a snap! I constantly have teenagers in and out of this house and they are always hungry. This would be great to be able to feed them all. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Oh this sounds so good. I like my chili hot as well so I will let it bake a little before adding the cheese. Headed to the store tomorrow so will put the huge (haha, not) list of ingredients on my list.
