MY FAVORITE FRITO PIE TOPPINGS

My favorite topping has to be avocado;

I like to mash it and add olive oil, salt, lime juice, and chopped spring onions, also if I have some cilantro for freshness. Tomatoes and lettuce taste wonderful with some salsa on top.

To make Frito Taco Pie you have to:

  1. First, prepare 1 pound of ground beef with taco seasoning according to the package directions, meanwhile, prepare all of your toppings.

HELPFUL TIPS FOR MAKING FRITO PIE

  1. The best tip I can give you to make Frito Taco Pie is to prepare it just before eating and make sure you have all your toppings ready once it comes from the oven.
  2. It might collapse if it is too hot so is better to wait for a few minutes, the Crescent rolls are a bit flaky but it’s just the best base for this pie because the buttery flavor combined with the ground beef is just divine!
  3. You can add beans to the ground beef and make it even more nutritious! Beans are full of iron and great minerals, great for the kids.
