We're big fans of Ree, here. That's our kind of food--hot, brown, and a lot of it
It wasn't necessarily her recipe, but I remember talking about Frito pie once at work. One of my co-workers, a real back-woods type, had never heard of it. I asked her what kind of redneck she called herself, not ever having had Frito pie.....she laughed and said apparently not a good enough one. So I had to bring in Frito pie, of course.
I admit that I had never had frito chili pie before I made it yesterday! I blame it on being a transplanted yankee! It really was delicious though and because it was so simple to prepare, I think it's going into regular rotation here at our house.
I've only made a handful of Ree's recipes but all have been really really good. Are there any favorites of her's you could recommend @donrae? Or any other recipes you think would be great for this cooler fall weather??
