Grilled Stuffed Fritos

I’m always on the lookout for something new and different to grill. One of my favorite blogs, Nibble Me This, is a great place to go for inspiration or new ideas, like these completely awesome grilled Fritos stuffed with a ground beef mixture and topped with cheese and a Southwestern sauce.

Grilled Stuffed FritosThe biggest challenge to making grilled stuffed Fritos is finding enough pretty Fritos. The best way is to pour the bag out onto a few baking sheets and start searching! If you have a Char-Broil Big Easy you can also make these stuffed Fritos on it.

  • Setup your grill for indirect cooking at 350 F.
  • Mix all ingredients except the Southwestern sauce in a large bowl.
  • Find 48 or so (you might need a few more) perfect Frito Scoop chips. You want ones with a nice scoop that will stand up without rolling over.
  • Spoon 1 tablespoon (more or less, depending on the size of the chips) of the meat mixture into each chip.
  • Grill chips about 20 minutes or until the meat hits 165 F with an instant-read thermometer.
  • Serve drizzled with the Southwestern sauce.
