Vegetable FRITOS® Chili Pie

Vegetable FRITOS® Chili Pie


This vegetable-filled FRITOS® Chili Pie includes layers of chunky chili, vegetables and beans topped with corn bread and crushed FRITOS® Lightly Salted Corn Chips.


1 can black beans, drained
1 can pinto beans, drained
1 can diced tomatoes, drained reserving 1/4 cup juice
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
3 zucchini, diced
1 package gluten free soy meatless beef crumbles OR 1 package tempeh, steamed and crumbed
1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded (optional)
1 1/2 cup cornbread mix
1/3 cup unsweetened soy/almond milk
1/4 cup silken tofu
1 cup crushed FRITOS® Lightly Salted Corn Chips
1/4 cup chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to your taste)


1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
2. In a large skillet sauté the onion until translucent.
3. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
4. Add the zucchini, carrot, meatless crumbles, and spices. Cook for 5 minutes until the carrots and zucchini have softened.
. Add the tomatoes, reserved tomato juice and beans to the skillet. Cook another 5-8 minutes until combined and heated through.
6. If it’s too dry, add a tiny bit of water. You don’t want it to be soupy or else it will create a soggy casserole.
7. Pour the vegetable mixture in the bottom of a 9X13-inch pan. Layer with Cheddar cheese if using.
8. With a food processor or hand mixer, combine the silken tofu and unsweetened milk.
9. Add the cornbread mixture and stir to combine. It’s okay if it’s a bit lumpy.
10. Pour the cornbread mixture over the vegetables and spread out to create a thin layer. It will puff up once cooked.
11. Bake for 20 minutes.
12. Remove from oven and spread the 1 cup crushed FRITOS® Lightly Salted Corn Chips on top.
13. Bake for 3 more minutes, remove from oven to cool for several minutes and serve!
