Record set for world's largest Frito Pie at State Fair

Posted: Updated:

Just three ingredients made up more than 1,100 pounds of lunch at the State Fair of Texas on Monday.

Chefs piled chili, shredded cheese and Fritos in a giant trough to make the world's largest Frito Chili Pie.

The Lone Star lunch made it into the Guiness Book of World Records in honor of the corn chip's 80th anniversary.

The gut-busting snack is expected to feed some 5,000 people today -- for free. So if you're headed to the fair, check out the fun.

Fritos were born in 1932 in San Antonio when Elmer Doolin bought a corn chip recipe from a local businessman. His mother is credited with creating the iconic gradeschool lunch, "Fritos Pie" using chili and cheese.

Frito-Lay created a "Fritos Pie Remix" website to challenge customers to use extreme ingredients. Some include peanut butter, caramel, and pork and beans.
