Vegetarian Frito Pie

I adapted this recipe that Mom's Pantry shared from
I switched it up, changed some things and made it "Texas".

Mom's Pantry is a blog that I follow.
You can access it from my blog.

Thanks again to Mom's Pantry for allowing me to share another amazing recipe.... and this one is perfect for Vegetarians!

This is another one of those unusual American Iconic Recipes...Frito Pie!
If my European friends can find the ingredients to make this ..... Ye Haw!

Vegetarian Chili Ingredients

To create Frito Pie:  ( recipe below is for one portion)

 Heat Oil in a Cast Iron Dutch Oven, add diced Onions, saute until clear. Add Yves Meatless Ground and stir to combine and cook until it begins to brown, stirring often.
Add all of the Spices and stir well.  Add  Beans, crushed Tomatoes and RO-TEL Tomatoes. Cover  and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Place Corn Chips in a bowl, top with Chili, add Cheese and Jalapenos.
