I was thinking of making these for a Super Bowl party.  I did a trial run and they were a big hit with my drinking buddies.  A bit red neck, but WTF, they tasted good.



I don't have a plated pic - they were topped with sour cream.

Here is the recipe:

    I have that book, and like lots of the recipes in it, including this one. It is one of my favorites. I have also made it with Tostitos Scoops, which have a slightly better shape for filling. His bourbon pecan pie is great, too.

    I have that book also - I highly recommend it to anyone new to cooking on the egg - in addition to recipes, the book does a good job explaining getting to and maintaining temperature.

    Lightweight.  87 of them is a good appetizer portion.  The entree had better taste better than these (not an easy task) or I'd never move on.

    Looks great. I had totally forgotten about those. People used to call them stuffed fritos back in the day. Used the search button and looks like the last time I made those was back in 2011. Thanks for reminding me about them.

  • That looks outstanding.  Every year for SB I make buffalo chicken dip (served with Fritos scoops).  You've inspired me to consider changing it up -- maybe I fill the scoops with the dip, add jalapeno on top.  #effort  
    It's a 302 thing . . .

  • I forgot all about this cook.  Last i had them was at a Salado Eggfest.  Kari and John cooked them all day long and they dissappeared as fast as she could plate them.  May make a chorizo version for next months BBQ Bash.
