In just over an hour; the Dallas Cowboys (whooooo!) will host their most hated rival; the Washington
RACIST TEAM NAME REDACTED in a classic Monday Night Matchup. Until I move to Texas; I have to be content with only watching the six to eight nationally televised Cowboys games a season. Monday night games, especially versus Washington, are particularly special, and so I celebrate them with appropriately Texan football food.
Frito Pie is the more highfalutin version of the classic Walking Taco (something I mentioned near the end of this article) and is perfect for a Monday night game when you don’t have much time to cook after you get home from work.
It’s so simple that even a
RACIST TEAM NAME REDACTED fan could make it.
Here’s the rundown:
- 1 large bag of Fritos
- 2 cans bad chili (seriously; don’t waste the good stuff on this one)
- 1 block Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- Beer (for drinking)
- Chopped onions
- Sour Cream
Ok. Preheat your oven to 350. Dump the Fritos in a deep casserole dish.Dump the chili on top of the chips. Shred the cheese on top of that and bake it for 5-10 minutes, depending on how done you like your cheese.
That’s it. That’s the whole thing. Now drink beer and yell at your TV every time they break another one of Tony Romo’s ribs.
For dessert? Guava and cheese empanadas. Here’s everything you need for that:
Have fun. I’m gonna go watch some football.
