Dorito and Onion Pie

Boredom + Pastry = Wacky Piestuffs.

Step 1: Assemble your ingredients

I made this up entirely from scratch, so the measurements are not precise.

Crust
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1/3 CupcLard
1/2 tsp salt
5 tbsp ice water

Filling
2 large sweet onions
1 large green bell pepper
2 cups Cool Ranch Doritos
4 Eggs
2 cups sour cream
1/8 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Step 2: Make the pastry shell

Combine the flour lard, and salt in a food processor. Pulse the food processor until the mixture looks grainy.

Step 3: Add water to the flour mixture

Pour the flour mixture into a mixing bowl, and add the cool water (do not add the actual ice) 2 tablespoons at a time. Toss the flour mixture with the water. By the time you get to five tablespoons of water, you should be approching a dough ball that will clean the sides of the bowl as you stir.

Step 4: Roll out the dough between sheets of waxed paper

Dump the dough ball on a peice of waxed paper, and place a second peice of waxed paper on top. Squish the dough flat, then begin rolling the dough out with a rolling pin. You will want to spin the wax-papered dough as you go, and roll out from the center. You are looking for an evenly flat, 10" circle (or close approximation thereof) of dough.

HINT - touch the dough as little as possible. Your own body heat will cause the lard to melt, at the expense of a flaky crust.

Step 5: Place pie shell in pie tin

Peel off the top piece of waxed paper. Place your pie tin on top of the dough, upside down. Then flip the whole works over so that the pastry shell falls into the pie tin. Then peel the remaining peice of paper back, and press the dough into the pie tin. The edges can be crunched up with your fingertips, then squished with the tines of a fork to make them look semi-presentable.

Step 6: Dock the pie shell

Finally, dock the pie shell by poking holes in it with the fork. This prevents bubbling.

Step 7: Pre-bake the pie shell for 5 minutes

Bake the pie shell at 350 degrees 9that magic number) for 5 minutes. This prevents a doughy pie shell. Set the now pre-baked shell aside, while you turn to your filling.

Excellent! Made this a couple of nights ago, but added some homemade roasted pepper salsa and some diced grilled chicken. Hubby and I both LOVED it!

Actually sounds FANTASTIC!!! But thats me, I mean I put hot sauce on my Mac n' cheese
I do that too!
Whats awesome is to mix in a little salsa into it, and throw it under a broiler for a little bit. Makes an awesome crust-stuff on top
I love tobasco sauce haha.

Interesting cooking experiment. Anything used with with onions and peppers with the ratio you used can only add only a subtle flavor to the whole. Does that hairy hand reveal not only do real men eat quiche, they make it as well? :)

In Germany we have this without Doritos! But we drink new Wine (non alcoholic) with this.

You know, if you used gruyere instead cheddar, and flour instead of doritos, you'd have something very much like a traditional Alsatian onion tart.

I'm still waiting to get into town (road has been closed for a unhealthy amount of time..damn winter) to get some ingredients to try this. I showed my mother and she thought it looked "damn good". I can't wait to try it cricket
Also too, what about using dorrito brand cool ranch? I think we have those no name ones around here, I remember eating them once, but in case I can't find that brand?

I can't believe you actually made something called dorito and onion pie sound appealing. I can't! But i think i need some!
damn straight, I'm making some of this bad boy up today and I'll take pictures to show you guys how it turned out.
You sir, are a tribute to Americans everywhere. Hail the glorious processed food revolution! Kraft Handyslice for life!

Yeah, i ixnayed the home-made dough and substituted a 2-pack of prepackaged stuff... pretty decent so far. I also didn't have any pepper, ran out of eggs(grand total of 5 for two pies), and only had a cup of sour cream left (substituted some softened cream cheese). Yeah, i stuck with cooler ranch, but did a 60-40 with the blended-hand crushed. I hope it'll make for bite-y pieces... or it'll just cut the roof of my mouth. Oh, also, after about 35 minutes, it seems to be done, and i thought 50 minutes for a quiche sounded long too... We'll see i guess... Report back when things cool down (i just now cooked it and will take it out of the over in a few)

This sounds terrific. It also has the look of a winner in the Pillsbury Cook-Off where the top prize is a million. All you have to do is to use some Pillsbury dough for the crust or one of their other products. They love it when you use their products and don't forget that their products could be anything that any of their companies make. Good luck.
