Fried Frito Pie is the ultimate game day or party appetizer! Crispy wonton wrappers filled with your favorite chili, cheese and Fritos make for irresistible bite-sized comfort food.
Fried Frito Chili Pie
Many times appetizers are the best part of the party and it’s not unusual to plan a whole menu of appetizers when all of the kids are home on the weekends.
When I was growing up my family owned a catfish restaurant and my love of fried food continues. I will fry just about anything but I’ve never made it to the state fair to try a deep fried Twinkie or Coca-Cola.
I’m sure I’d be hooked for life. My Apple Pie Egg Rolls started some sort of obsession with things I could fry in an egg roll wrapper and I think the Fried Frito Pie might be my favorite so far.
Frito Chili Pie is usually the best thing you can get a high school concession stand and I can’t even tell you how many gallons of chili I’ve made for such events. This appetizer takes that classic comfort food to the next level of deliciousness.
I served these bite- sized Fried Frito Chili Pies with some simple guacamole and a side of Fritos. The guys were literally eating these as fast as I could fry them. They have definitely earned a top spot among my favorite appetizers!
Next time you are hosting a party or having family game or movie night, you have to add these to the menu. It’s also a great way to stretch that last bit of chili to feed a crowd.
Of course leftover chili is almost non-existent around my guys, but I was able to sneak a cup to make this deep fried appetizer!
One last note, don’t be afraid to deep fry! Use a heavy-bottom pan or cast iron skillet and you are set. Yes, it’s a little messy but totally worth the crunchy delicious results!

Hi! Can these be frozen after assembly but before deep frying so I can make ahead for a party?
I haven't tried that but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. Let me know how it turns out if you try it!
