Photos: Frito Pie at Cantine

Frito pie, information pills or a walking taco, order is a beloved cheap treat for many Americans. Huxley Wallace Collective’s new bar and bottle shop Cantine takes this classic dish and elevates it to a much more sumptuous level, treat featuring all house-made ingredients. Take a look at the cooking process below, featuring the Frito chips made from fried pasta, house-made chili, and pickled onions.

While Cantine is no longer, the idea of the made from scratch Frito pie is still a glorious one. So how do you make one? Start with homemade chili. Then make your own Frito chips via thin corn pasta, fried of course. Top those chips with chili, sour cream, jalapenos, and all the toppings you desire. There you have it!

Other Huxley Wallace Collective restaurants in the Seattle area include Scout and The Nest, located downtown across the street from Pike Place Market.
