Frito Pie

I found this recipe at Real Mom Kitchen. I made it for dinner yesterday but then we ended up going out on a "family date". So I reheated it today and it was so good!! Caleb, my 3 year old cleaned his plate and Micayla, 5, ate most of her's.

Frito Pie

1/2 pound ground beef, browned and drained (I used a full pound and used my bottom heat slow cooker instead of my crock-pot so I didn't even bother to brown it first)
2 (16 oz cans) pork and beans, pork removed
1 (4 oz can) chopped green chilies
1 (8 oz can) tomato sauce - (I used a can of Fire Roasted Tomatoes instead)
4 to 6 drops Tabasco sauce (I left this out)
1 bag (15 oz) Fritos Corn Chips

Combine all ingredients except chips in a greased 3 to 4 1/2 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Scoop over a handful of Fritos. Makes 6 - 8 servings (I think it makes more like 5 servings)
Serve with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, and grated cheddar cheese.
