We took a drive up to Taos, NM and stopped at a great little joint called Orlandos. I was really craving beans and decided to get the frito pie with chicken and green chili, yum! Once we got home I decided I'd give it a try.... here's my recipe for frito pie with green chili and chicken. Enjoy!
- 1 lb chicken, chopped
- 1/4 C. onion, diced
- 1/4 tsp. garlic, diced
- 2 Tbls. olive oil
- 13 oz. Bueno chopped green chili **
- 15 oz. can of beans (I like black but you can use pinto)
- Lettuce, chopped
- 1-2 tomatoes, chopped
- Cheddar, grated
- Fritos Corn Chips
- Cook chicken in olive oil with onion and garlic. Once chicken is mostly cooked, add green chili.
- Warm can of beans.
- Place beans onto plate, top with chicken green chili mixture, cheese, lettuce, tomato and frito chips. Serve with warmed flour tortillas.
Finish off dinner with some yummy Trader Joe cookies!!!
