Frito Pie Casserole

My sister, Debra, came for a visit this past Saturday.  While I was cooking us a lunch of lasagna, homemade bread, and a cream cheese pound cake, we looked at recipes and visited before going shopping.  When I mentioned the Frito Pie Casserole, she told me that when she was traveling with her daughter Katie's softball and volleyball teams, that the girls loved to eat Frito Pies at the concession stands.  She told me that I had to blog the Frito Pie Casserole for the kids who would love it ......as well as their parents.  This recipe came from Favorite Recipes of Alabama Vocational Home Economics Students Recipe Book that our Mom gave to both of us.
