Warm Crap in a Bag (Frito Pie nickname)

Frito pie is made with Fritos corn chip and chili; cheese, onions and tomatoes are often added. In New Mexico, Frito pie is served right in the Fritos bag.

Anthony Bourdain, host of CNN’s Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, did a show on New Mexico on September 30, 2013. He called Frito pie “warm crap in a bag” and “colostomy pie.”

Bourdain later clarified that, although he thought the dish looked like crap, it was actually tasty.

Anthony Bourdain Describes Frito Pie as “Warm Crap In a Bag”
He also called it a “colostomy pie.” But now Anthony Bourdain has sort of apologized for some of his comments on an episode of CNN’s Parts Unknown after insulting the “World Famous” Frito pies served up at Santa Fe’s Five & Dime General Store’s snack bar in New Mexico.

In the episode, he described the dish as canned Hormel chili covered in a “‘day-glow orange cheese-like substance.” And then he further insulted New Mexicans by telling them that the Frito pie should be left to their neighbors: “New Mexico, you have many wonderful things,” Bourdain said. “I think, let Texas have this one.”

After enraging the entire state of New Mexico by ridiculing one of its favorite dishes, TV chef Anthony Bourdain has turned heel and apologized for his sharp-tongued comments.

The chef and writer used toilet humor to describe the snacks sold at Santa Fe’s famous Five & Dime General Store’s on a recent episode of his show Parts Unknown. He now says he ‘got it wrong.’

TONY BOURDAIN ON FRITO PIE
Warm Crap in a Bag
Frito Pie is our traditional Halloween Dinner. Who cares what Tony Bourdain thinks?

Halloween is usually a night of hectic preparations and emergency costume repairs. It’s not a great time to try to cook an elaborate meal—which is why Frito Pie has become our holiday dinner tradition. I put on a big pot of chili con carne early in the day and ladle some out into individual size Fritos corn chip bags when somebody gets hungry.

Chopped onions, shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes and pickled jalapeños are all suitable additions. The combination of condiments probably evolved at hamburger counters, hot dog joints, and high school football stadium concession stands where these ingredients are always on hand.

Frito pie is a fine Texas tradition—not “warm crap in a bag,” as @Bourdain so colorfully puts it: http://www.houstoniamag.com/eat-and-drink/gastronaut/articles/warm-crap-in-a-bag-october-2013
