I believe that Frito Pie has its origins in or around San Antonio. A fellow noticed something similar and converted it (in latter 19th century) to the nationallly eaten dish

For the novice on the run:
Basic recipe is chili poured into the bag of fritos. Serve with plastic spoon.

For the table, use
Chili
Fritos
Diced onion
Diced or shredded cheddar cheese
Possibly chopped weiners

To get fancy, your toppings are
Diced chiles
Black olives
Sour cream
Green onion stems
Mustard
Cilantro
Sliced tomatoes
