NEW MEXICO!! I’m here writing, and of course, I’m thinking of the trip to New Mexico that I took not too long ago. All I can say is that the art was amzing, but the experience was Meh.
I distinctively remember absolutely needing to try everything New Mexican and get the full feel of what it truly meant to live in Alberquerque. So, I tried fry bread. NEWSFLASH to anyone curious about that one, it’s just fried dough. I was dissapointed to find that out, especially after I had watched a video in college where the man kept going on about fry bread–fry bread and how good mexican fry bread was. Not that I dislike Fried Dough, but I thought fry bread was going to be just that: FRY BREAD. Maybe one day I can attempt fry bread. My stomach will thank me later.
Then there was the time I had the Green Chile Stew. I had to try it. I had to be adventurous. What the hell was I thinking? If my mother had not stopped me, I very likely would have thrown up all over the place. As a result, to this day, my stomach cannot handle spicy foods. Even the thought makes me quezzy.
Have you ever heard about Frito Pie? Whoever thought that would be a good idea? But it is and so, so is. It comes with sort of like a salad, then chile on top and topped with fritos and boy oh boy does it hit the spot.
Well, if you’re in college and you are feeling like a real quick meal, frito pie might well be the way to go. So pop those frito bags open and see the recipe below:
The recipe is give or take and rather flexible. My frito pie took only 16 minutes in the oven. I used canned turkey chili with beans to cut back on the cook time. My frito pie consists of chili, fritos and onnions and cheese (it’s rather basic) yummm…
