Celebrate National Pie Day with FRITOS CHILI PIE®!

Fritos-chili-pieToday is National Pie Day, and here at Frito-Lay we're celebrating with the best pie in the world – FRITOS CHILI PIE®! FRITOS CHILI PIE® first made its debut in 1932, shortly after Elmer Doolin and his family began selling FRITOS Corn Chips. To help market the new corn chips, Doolin's mother, Daisy Dean Doolin, topped them with beef chili, cheese and onions, and the classic FRITOS CHILI PIE® recipe was born. Some of our fellow FRITOS CHILI PIE® enthusiasts may remember when we set the Guinness World Record for the World's Largest FRITOS CHILI PIE® when we made one that topped the scale at more than 1,300 pounds at the State Fair of Texas!

Of course, there is more than one way to make a FRITOS CHILI PIE®. From sweet to savory to mild to spicy, I bet we have a recipe for you. Check out our YouTube playlist below to see some of the great ways you can enjoy one!

Now that we've got your stomach growling, leave us a comment to let us know how you'll celebrate National Pie Day!
