Frito Pie

In this year's SAVEUR 100, we take stock of our favorite things: recipes, people, places. We consider every last one a new classic.

Texans and New Mexicans have locked horns for decades over who can lay claim to the irresistible creation that is Frito pie. Making it is a simple matter of topping a pile of Fritos corn chips with chili, cheddar, onions, and sliced jalapeños. It’s often served right inside the Fritos bag, but it’s equally appealing in an old-fashioned paper boat, garnished with cilantro and scallions.
