Yes. It’s been hot here.
No. This recipe is not altogether organic.
Nor is it superbly healthy, complicated or beautiful.

But beware if you’re pregnant, hungry, or looking for a quick-filling meal on a hot day. This one takes but a few moments to prepare and requires no patience at all. Unless you don’t have access to Fritos (or some similar corn chip). Do not ask me how many of these we consumed while I was pregnant. Glenn should be a big fan. Just saying.

This meal is so ironic. I am digging back to my junior high days for inspiration. Yes, the cheerleading squad always sold these Frito Bowls when I was still in my ‘tweens. And now I’m actually sharing it here on my blog. The 33-year-old, naturally-inclined mother I am now. Oh well. Bear with me. I won’t make you eat it right out of the Fritos bag like we did two decades ago…unless you’re camping. Then that might actually work quite well for you.

OK, here it goes. Frito Chili Bowls to the rescue. (And if you’re avoiding salty foods…stay away from this one. It’s divinely endowed with plenty of sodium. Yum.)
