I remember ordering Frito Pie at school in Farmington, New Mexico. It was made a bit different there though. Just the Frito's, chili, and cheese. no onion..


How fabulous to have that piece of family history -- the newspaper clipping to show the dates and names. Do you have your great-grandmother's recipe still? Does it match fairly closely that which is described in the original post?

I have proof that Frito Pie originated in Texas back during the depression. My great-grandmother won a frito lay contest, where you had to come up with a recipe using frito lay chips. My family has the newspaper clipping that pre-dates all other claims on the frito pie recipe.


It's not a Frito Pie unless it's from the Five and Dime in Santa Fe. I have dreams about that taste!!! No matter where it came from, Teresa Hernanadez's is the only Frito Pie

The frito pie in the bag was a popular food item at football and basketball games at high schools here in Texas back in the 60's.
