Okay, okay, most of us are partial to our mother’s versions of the food we grew up with. I’m trying to be objective here, but this traditional chili is the bee’s knees, seriously. Accordingly, I’ve taken Frito Pie as a new favorite supper. If you’ve got a crew to feed or need a terrific winter meal, this is it. I recommend with Fritos and cheese, or with tamales. Enjoy!

1 pound of chili meat
