Meatless Monday: Healthy Vegan Frito Pie!

I wasn’t going to do it…but I felt obligated after all this talk about chili.  I have made over the Frito pie recipe.  The funny thing is I have never ever made a Frito pie before.  I have seen the recipe and it always looked good, but never could get passed the fact that it was so unhealthy.  So I fixed it!

Do you remember the Baked Chili Cheese Baked Frito’s I made a few weeks ago? Because they are baked with just a few sprays of cooking oil and the tortillas are whole grain corn, they are super healthy and low fat. These healthy Frito’s became the base for the “pie”. I used my low fat, high fiber Spicy 3 Bean Chili. Then I topped the whole thing off with a great new nacho cheese dip that I have been creating.  It was really, really good!

 I served it up with some shredded lettuce, tomato and homemade salsa to round out the meal. Even my anti-chili son thought it was pretty tasty!
