Sunny Days in Texas: Frito Pie

Frito Pie might be my most favorite dish, we certainly make it enough! I was really looking forward to trying Molly’s award winning recipe because I tried her chili before at the Lone Star Vegetarian Chili Cook-Off, and it was my favorite. I had never made it before because we usually use a ppk recipe that I also love. Molly’s recipe is so much simpler, quicker, and requires almost entirely pantry staples so I am definitely going to make this a lot more. Oh, and it tasted great and was super cheap. It doesn’t get much better than that!

I served it to a couple friends, including two native Texans and they both really enjoyed it and wanted the recipe. In fact, I sold another zine! I forgot that nonvegans always cover their frito pie in cheese and I didn’t have any vegan cheese. I tried to proselytize topping with nooch and the Texans seemed to enjoy that quite a bit. When I told them that I sometimes carry a nooch shaker to top my frito pie at restaurants they thought that was going a bit to far. Whatever, nooch is the shit and it is packed with B-vitmans.

Today Miso for Breakfast is giving away a copy of the zine although I still have a few for sale.

Every post this month for Veganmofo will be celebrating the recipes in the zine Sunny Days in Texas, a fundraiser cookzine to help Sunny Day Farms Animal Sanctuary.

    Looks yummy! Do you just balls to the wall it and buy regular Fritos, or do you know of some awesome GMO corn chip hiding in the alleys somewhere. I think I’ve had something from Trader Joe’s, but not the same thing as my beloved Frito.

    Kittee- I usually do get fritos because they have them at the corner store and the co-op doesn’t sell a nice non-gmo kind. I know such a thing exists though because the vegan yacht serves the organic kind.
