  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium pot over medium heat, add butter and cubed chicken. Add cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, and hot sauce, and cook, stirring regularly until chicken is cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  2. Use two forks to shred the chicken in the pot as it cooks. Reduce heat down to low.
  3. Either in one large baking dish or 4 smaller baking dishes (individual servings) add a layer of Fritos, followed by a layer of pulled chicken and cheese. Repeat with another layer of Fritos, chicken, and cheese.
  4. Bake Frito pies for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees F. until cheese is really melted and the entire dish is bubbling hot.
  5. Top Frito pies with toppings of your choice and serve immediately!
