Game Time Recipe: Buffalo Chicken Dip with Fritos (Frito Pie)

11:08 AM

Frito Pie is one of those amazing recipes that you just know you're going to love.  Fritos tend to make most every snack or appetizer (even dessert) super crunchy, salty, and good; so this recipe, which I tweaked a bit from the original Buffalo Chicken Fritos Chili Pie, ended up having appeal with  the wing-loving side of the family.  You can make it as spicy as you'd like... just adjust the hot sauce ratio!

For this version of the dish, you'll need the following ingredients (available at Walmart):

  • 1 cup chicken broth 
  • 2-3 cups shredded, cooked chicken breast (I like mine tender from the slow cooker)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 1/8 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup Mexican cheese blend
For the garnish:
  • Sliced, fresh leeks (bottom white portions only)
  • Ranch dressing to taste
  • optional: fresh diced tomatoes and lettuce
  • 1 bag FRITOS® Original Corn Chips for serving 

To prepare, heat up the shredded chicken and chicken broth in a sautee pan on medium high heat until the broth has reduced to about half.  Add in the hot sauce and cream immediately, stirring until bubbly.  Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until the liquid is reduced slightly, then add butter.  Continue cooking until sauce is thick.  (If you have a hard time getting a thicker sauce, add in a tiny amount of flour mixed with water or use a bit of corn starch.) When it's thick enough, stir in the cheese and immediately put into a serving bowl.

Top with a bit of ranch dressing and the leeks.  Serve with Fritos and additional toppings!
