Growing up, I thought that everyone knew about haystacks. After getting stationed here and there with my husband, I found out NO ONE knew about haystack dinners. 

The best way to describe it is like a taco salad. But it’s way better than that…. 

It’s a haystack.

Taco salad recipe

If it helps, you can think of it like a taco salad but there is one ingredient that you have to use. No substitutes or you’ve completely changed the dish into something else. 

It’s the Fritos. I’m serious on this one. You can’t use tortilla style, you can’t use Doritos…No  

You 100% have to use Fritos.
