Best Frito Pie

Golden West Café

842 W. 36th St., (410) 889-8891

Posted 9/15/1999

The Frito pie: a one-of-a-kind New Mexico tradition, a mind-blowing munchie straight out of another time zone. Hampden's Golden West Café mixes up a steaming bowl of Monterey Jack cheese, homemade salsa fresca, and delicious green-chili sauce and tosses it all with our beloved childhood friend, Fritos. As with your favorite breakfast cereal, eating a Frito pie is a race against the clock to maintain optimum crunchiness. But as you shovel that last forkful of salty, chippy, cheesy goodness down, you'll thank the geniuses at the Golden West and vow to yourself to find a way to include Fritos in every recipe at every meal, for the rest of your life.
