As promised here is the recipe for Chicken Frito Pie that I made for Gone Girl Book Club
Chicken Frito Pie
1 T vegetable oil
2 c cooked chicken ( I used a rotisserie, one from my grocers deli)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 can cannelli beans drained (white beans)
1 can tomatoes with green chilies (rotel)
1 T chili powder
1 2 c bag shredded cheddar cheese
1 bag fritos (not scoops)
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. add oil. Then add chicken, onion, and garlic, saute about 3-5 minutes or until onion is soft and garlic is browned. add beans, tomatoes, and chili powder. Continue cooking until all ingredients are heated through.
Preheat oven to 350
Pour fritos into the bottom of a pie pan ( enough to cover the bottom) take the heel of your hand and slightly crush the corn chips so the lay flat. add 1 c shredded cheese, then chicken mixture, then 1 more cup cheese and then cover with fritos. Bake for about 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve with sour cream.
