30 minutes is enough time to get a piping hot bowl of this Frito Chili Pie in front of you and your family! My family is from the South, and chili just doesn't come without a heaping pile of onions, a generous dollop of mustard (the yellow variety), and more than one serving of corn chips. This classic vegetarian chili is perfect for cold winter nights.
