How to Make Walking Frito Pie
Because everything is already done for you, all you have to do to make this walking Frito pie is heat up whatever canned chili you like and set out everything else!
Firstly, let’s talk canned chili. If you are not a chili fan, you might not even know about the beans vs. no beans debate! Here in Texas, most people give a big, fat NO to beans in their chili. Me, on the other hand, I like the flavor that beans add (please don’t take away my Texan card)! So, when you are shopping around for chili, look to see whether or not there are beans.

Once you are ready to serve the walking Frito pie, create an assembly line of ingredients. Make it spread out enough where your guests have room to walk from one ingredient to the next.
To assemble the walking Frito pie, first crush up the chips a little. Go easy on the bag, though, so it does not bust open. You can, of course, skip this step, but it sure is fun!
After that, add the heated up chili.
Then add cheese and jalapeño slices. You can also use green onion in addition to the jalapeño, or in place of.
The best part of the walking Frito pie, you can eat it right out of the bag! No dirty dishes to clean here!
