Hello again, everyone, and welcome to my dinner! lol

Tonight’s dish is a family classic that my grandma used to make… a dish we all love. It’s quick, easy, and oh-so-delicious!


1lb ground beef
1/4 large onion, diced
1 can of corn, strained (or same amount of frozen.)
2 cans of your favorite chili (used Dennyson’s here.)
1 medium bag of Fritos, crushed
some salt and pepper.

Preheat your oven to 350 while dicing up your onion, and cook it with the ground beef until the beef is fully browned. To brown my meat, I used 2 large pinches of kosher salt and 7 grinds of black pepper, along with just a tiny smidge of olive oil to help the onions along (I tossed them in, then the beef. I had to open the package lol).

Removing the pan from heat, add the contents of the pan into a casserole dish, along with the chili, corn, and 3/4 of the fritos. Combine the ingredients, and smooth down the top.

Add butter, about 1-2 tablespoons, over the top. You can either slice it very thin and lay it across the top – don’t have to cover the whole thing – or just cube it up and sprinkle it over.

On top of the butter, add the remaining fritos, and bake for 30 minutes.

Remove from oven, serve, and enjoy!! Yummy and delicious!!!
