Texas Fried Frito Pie took the prize at the Texas State Fair, which concludes on Oct. 17. The creators Michael Thomas, Richard Roznowski and Jeffrey Lovel spent six months developing the recipe - balls of cheese and chili rolled in corn chips and then battered and deep-fried, reports slashfood.com. Available at Bert Concessions at the fair, they chose Texas Chili Co.'s chili, a basic cheese and Frito chip. "We combined the chili and the cheese and then we surround it in chips and then we freeze it and then we batter it and fry it," said Lovel. They plan to market the product for wider distribution at stadiums and music venues. The team even beat out Fried Beer, which won the Creativity Award. Hmmm, and why not combine the two?
