Sunny Days in Texas: Frito Pie

Frito Pie might be my most favorite dish, we certainly make it enough! I was really looking forward to trying Molly’s award winning recipe because I tried her chili before at the Lone Star Vegetarian Chili Cook-Off, and it was my favorite. I had never made it before because we usually use a ppk recipe that I also love. Molly’s recipe is so much simpler, quicker, and requires almost entirely pantry staples so I am definitely going to make this a lot more. Oh, and it tasted great and was super cheap. It doesn’t get much better than that!

I served it to a couple friends, including two native Texans and they both really enjoyed it and wanted the recipe. In fact, I sold another zine! I forgot that nonvegans always cover their frito pie in cheese and I didn’t have any vegan cheese. I tried to proselytize topping with nooch and the Texans seemed to enjoy that quite a bit. When I told them that I sometimes carry a nooch shaker to top my frito pie at restaurants they thought that was going a bit to far. Whatever, nooch is the shit and it is packed with B-vitmans.

Today Miso for Breakfast is giving away a copy of the zine although I still have a few for sale.

Every post this month for Veganmofo will be celebrating the recipes in the zine Sunny Days in Texas, a fundraiser cookzine to help Sunny Day Farms Animal Sanctuary.
