Debbie's Frito® Pie

Recipe by  

"I love this recipe because it can be prepared ahead and frozen. Thaw time is minimal. A great dish for game day or surprise company. I really love this dish because it is so simple to make, yet it tastes fabulous. It freezes well, so when you have time on your hands, you can make a couple up and freeze them. Then when you are harried or just plain tired, just pop it in the oven and have a wonderful meal. It is also well within anyone's budget. Some like it better the second time around. Any kind of salad goes well with it."

I have a version of this in the oven right now. I had made some chili a couple of days ago and had almost a quart left over so I thought this sounded good. I only had white corn chips but I used them, the black olives and cheese. I couldn't imagine using 2 pounds of cheese so I had an 8oz. package. It looks and smells awesome. Thank you for the recipe. I'm giving it 4 stars because I've not followed it exactly but next time I will try your version.
