Tonight's meal from the 5 ingredient challenge was the the easiest to throw together yet! It came together in about 5 minutes and only needed to bake for 15. Best of all, my family loved this! No leftovers for tomorrow.
Here are my 5 ingredients: Fritos, a can of turkey chili, a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies, onion, and shredded cheese.
Just put two cups of Fritos into the bottom of a pie plate, then sprinkle with about a cup of diced onion.
Then mix together the chili and 1/2 can of diced tomatoes. The tomatoes were my addition. This recipe originally only called for 4 ingredients. I only added half of the can because they were a little spicy and I wanted to make sure the kiddos would eat it. Pour the chili mixture over the Fritos and onion.
Top with cheese and pop it into the oven for 15 minutes.
And that's it! Dinner! Pictured below is actually the last serving of chili pie. I made a pretty bowl with a dollop of sour cream to photograph and then got distracted with feeding the kids. I totally forgot about taking a picture and sat down to eat. I had just finished my bowl and my husband was re-filling his bowl when he said, "This is really good. Did you get a picture?" Ooops. "No, I didn't. Here, give me that!" I snatched his bowl away. Luckily I snapped this while there was still something left to photograph!
