Frito Pie Casserole

Nothing screams comfort food like a pile chips, meats, and toppings, right?!?!?! Well, last week, the kids were still off school and I was in the mood for a quick, kid friendly dinner. I rummaged through my pantry and found a bag of Fritos, went through my freezer and found ground turkey (beef works great as well), and some yummy toppings. I decided to throw this casserole together since it has been a family favorite for years, but I never got around to blogging it (sorry)!

This is very similar to “walking tacos” or “California taco” if you have ever heard of those two dishes before!


Frito Pie Casserole


  • 1 lb ground turkey (or beef)
  • 2 tbsp. dried onion flakes
  • (2) 15 oz. cans ranch style beans
  • 20 oz. enchilada sauce
