Frito Plate






This is a Dunkin family favorite, everyone seems to have their own spin on the recipe, this is how my husband and myself make ours. This serves 2-4 depending on appetite.




Ingredients



1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 can tomato soup
Grated cheese of any type you wish, I use the low fat Mexican Blend
Diced tomato and onion, reserve some onion for the assembly
Diced red bell pepper
Shredded lettuce
Frito’s
Sour Cream and Salsa of your choice


Directions


Cook the meat, and add seasonings to taste. I use Mexican spices such as chili powder, cayenne and of course salt and pepper.

When the meat is about halfway cooked, add half the diced onions and finish cooking, in the meantime heat up the soup, instead of adding a whole can of water use ¾ a can. Mix well. I also add a shake of cayenne to the soup



Assembly:


On a plate put down a layer of Fritos, then lettuce. Add your cooked meat, add tomatoes, red bell pepper and onions, then cheese.


Pour the hot tomato soup on top, and it will melt the cheese and be so YUMMY. We add sour cream and salsa as a finale
