Anthony Bourdain ran into hot water for his comments on a New Mexico store’s Frito pie recipe after the latest episode of his CNN show “Parts Unknown” aired on Sunday.
Comparing the mixture of chili, Fritos corn chips and cheese to a warm bag of poo, Bourdain said the concoction was made of “canned Hormel chili and dayglow orange cheese-like substance.”
Not true, says Five and Dime General Store Santa Fe manager Lorraine Chavez, who claims that she makes the chili fresh each day, according to CNN’s affiliate KRQE.
“It's a basic recipe,” she said. “It takes at least a good hour and a half.”
