Arnold's Dutch Oven Frito Pie Recipe
Pat & Heather Arnold
- 2 lbs of ground beef
- 2 small onions, diced
- 1 15-ounce can of tomato sauce
- 1 can each of kidney beans, black beans & corn
- 1 green pepper diced
- 1 bag of Fritos
- 1 bag of shredded cheese (taco flavor is good!)
- cumin, salt, pepper, garlic salt, chili powder to taste
- sour cream (optional)
- lettuce (optional)
Following the Dutch Oven directions, brown ground beef with onions and salt and pepper. When cooking is completed, drain beef. Spread a generous layer of Fritos on the bottom of the Dutch Oven, reserving some for later. Top the Frito layer with drained beef. In a separate bowl, stir together the tomato sauce, beans, corn and green pepper. Add spices to taste. Pour mix over beef layer. Cook for approximately 35-45 minutes at 350 degrees. Sprinkle a layer of cheese on top during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Before serving, in each individual's dinner bowl, sprinkle some Frito's. Scoop dinner out of Dutch Oven and place on top. Finish off with some sour cream, lettuce and extra cheese.
