I know several people who just make a Rotel dip and pour that in the bag with some onions.

I remember Sonic having it on their menu in the 70s.

Frito pie was always sold at the high school concession stands--straight in the Frito bags.

Dawn, we in Texas do not do Frito Pie cold!

For real, your recipe sounds good. Best secret advice, keep it simple, don't all fancy it up and all with them fancy ingredients sold at those fancy yankee stores you have up there.

Visited some relatives in Wisconsin years ago. My cousin decides she would make us a Texas treat, chili. It had noodles in it.

Sounds like something more along the lines of a goulash or what they call chili mac, which is basically a type of goulash.

Year ago, I was watching a cooking show on TV and they made what they called chili, Cincinnati style. LOL It had spaghetti in it. Imagine, chili with spaghetti.

Chili with spaghetti and beans is actually really good. I grew up eating that in Houston.

A Texas-style pasta dish. I don't see the harm in it. Texans could stand to be a little more creative.

Ah, Frito pie! I am convinced that to enjoy the dish at its best is to eat it there.

I remember Frito pies very fondly from my years in Austin. I left Texas long ago, but when I tried to make Frito pies it just wasn't the same. May try it again one day soon.

Fritos were discovered and/or invented in San Antonio, Texas! Frito pie as I know it consists or Fritos, chili, onions, shredded cheddar cheese. Simple basic ingredients.

Yes, it is. Beans work really well wiith the thin spaghetti noodles that I use. I add a few cloves of garlic and put a big dollop of sour cream on top. I use Cincinnati chili and reduce it by about 50%. I first had a very similar dish at Steak'n'Shake called Chili Three Ways. They now have Chili Five Ways as well as some other variations. I do wish that Steak'n'Shake sold their chili in cans; it is the best. They were serving this before World War II.

I need to try it with a little coffee added.

The best way to eat Fritos is with plain cream cheese. It's great for trips because I can eat it while I'm driving.
