Depending on your preference, a taco boat can be a crunchy chili salad or more like chili nachos.   I like mine with lots of lettuce and when the corn chips become slightly soft from the chili’s juices.



  • ½ c corn chips such as Fritos
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup prepared chili
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Dollop sour cream
  • Chives


Warm the chili in a pot.  You may use any chili such as potluck chili or pumpkin chili or even a store bought option.

In a bowl place corn chips and lettuce.  Top with chili then cheddar cheese, sour cream, and chives.
