Five and Dime General Store

58 E. San Francisco, Santa Fe, NM - (505) 992-1800
When you order a Frito pie at the Five and Dime, mild and meaty red chile is ladled into an open “Big Grab” bag of corn chips, then shredded cheese is spread across the top. The chili is hot enough so the cheese begins to melt, and by the time you plant a plastic fork, it’s molten. Chopped onions and jalapeno chips are offered as a garnish.

In the location on The Plaza once occupied by the town’s wonderful old Woolworth’s, the Five and Dime continues to sell a wide variety of household goods as well as its famous Fritos pie.

The fork's been planted and the top of the pie has been strewn with (optional) diced onion and jalapeno chips.
