Chili Cheese Fritos

chili cheese fritos

A memory that I have from middle school and high school was the $3 chili cheese fritos from the concession stands. They were seriously amazing! I play basketball, volleyball and was a cheerleader so there were plenty of opportunities to get these delicious chili cheese fritos.  They would put theirs in a frito chip bag though. Which is a cute idea. I didn’t have small frito chip bags or I would of.

I had never made these before and was craving them. My kids seriously thought that they were amazing too. They love any time we have chips, sour cream and cheese combined though. If you love concession stand food you will love this quick and hit the spot dish. Enjoy!!!
