a.k.a. The best Frito Pie/Chili Recipe you never knew you needed
Alright babes! It’s summertime, Fourth of July is around the corner, and while I know everyone loves a good grilled anything around this time, I have a recipe that will have you and all of your company wanting more!
I have no idea where this name came from, but “Huli Guli” is a long running family recipe that I grew up with. I’m sure there’s plenty of versions of this everywhere but I figured I would share mine! Essentially it’s a homemade Frito Pie or some form of chili, so hopefully that helps y’all understand it a little better. This was probably one of the first things I learned how to cook because it’s SO EASY! If you know how to brown meat and open cans, you can totally make this, no sweat!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 lb. Ground Meat
- 1, 26 oz. Ranch Style Beans
- 1, 10oz. Rotel
- 1 Tomato Soup Can (10.75 oz.)
- Garlic Powder
(optional but suggested)
- Shredded Lettuce
- Shredded Cheese
- Sour Cream
Step 1: Brown the Meat
Brown your meat however you are comfortable. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. I have this fabulous tool from Pampered Chef and it is an angel when it comes to breaking up the meat!
Step 2: Open Cans, Pour & Let Simmer
It’s honestly as simple as that! No tricks or specific order to pouring. One tip I will suggest; drain your can of Ranch Style Beans, if not it may end up a little more liquidy than you want!
Step 3: Mix it all up!
Once meat is ready (cooked and drained) and your liquids are simmering, combine the two and stir in! You should now have a beautiful pot of Huli Guli!
How to Prep
This is all up to YOU! Throughout my family, we all prep ours differently. My mom starts with the lettuce on the bottom, Marcus starts with the Huli Guli on the bottom and so on and so forth. I follow the order shown below, but this is all up to you!
I hope you enjoy this recipe, it’s great for parties, easy to make and oh so yummy! This is a staple in our home throughout all seasons. If you try this recipe, be sure to tag me, I would LOVE to hear all about your Huli Guli!
