Frito Pie Chili

Frito Pie Chili

2 lbs ground beef or turkey
1 15 oz tomato sauce
1 15 oz stewed tomates
1 15 oz can water
2 med onions, chopped
1/2 cup chili powder
1/2 T garlic powder
1 T dried onions
1/2 T Cumin
1/2 T Oregano
1 t smoked paprika
1 t cracked pepper
1 t salt or to taste
1 T masa mix with 1/4 cut water
1/2 T cayenne

Add all ingredients except masa & cayene to cooked ground beef.  Simmer for 30 minutes.  Mix masa and water together, add to mixture.  Add cayenne.  Continue simmering for 20 more minutes.  Add more salt if needed. 
Optional: To the finished product I add 2 cups of beans.  Any delicious bean works.

This is our home favorite frito pie chili.  This recipe took me a few years to finally perfect it. 
We top our Frito Pie's with fresh onion, cheddar cheese, tomatoes and jalapenos.  Yum!
