Frito Pie

     This 5-ingredient dish takes the idea of a "Taco in a Bag" and literally brings a pie to the dinner table. Since my family doesn't like the soggy bread affect of sloppy joes, I put the thick sloppy joe mix right on top of crunchy chips in a pie pan. The melted cheese does a great job of gluing the ingredients together for a slice of warm goodness with just a little bit of crunch. What an easy dinner in about half an hour.

1 Lb. ground beef

Preheat oven to 350. Spray coat or grease a 9-inch pie pan.

Brown meat and drain excess liquid. Add sauce, stir to combine and simmer until warm and bubbly.

Sprinkle layer of chips in pie pan and spread to evenly distribute. Layer meat, onion (if using) and cheese on top of chips.

Bake 10 minutes for cheese to melt and ingredients to warm. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Cut pie in 6-8 wedges.
