One of my favorite dishes that my Granddad made growing up is Frito Pie. I mean how can you turn down seasoned ground beef, cheese, and Fritos! This is one of those meals I also used to help Granddad make. This is a great meal to prepare with your kids, because it’s easy to prepare and it’s one everyone will love.
