Kangaroo & Pork Chili Frito Pie

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “junk food”. I was really unsure what to make for this I try not to eat junk food all that often. Plus, I wanted to make something that after eating it, did not make me feel like I was killing myself. While Chili probably is not the healthiest food, it has been raining pretty hard at my house and flooding so I wanted to sit and eat some comfort movie and watch shitty b movies.

I have made chili a number of times but I try to change it up every time. This time, I think that I should have used more spicy ingredients. I was definitely satisfied and the fritos gave it a good crunch.

I typically make my own black beans but canned can be used as well
