Haystack Recipe with Fritos

Haystack Dinner Recipe

15 Minute no fuss dinner that everyone will enjoy. Make tonight easy and delicious with this Haystack recipe with Fritos.

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 haystacks. 

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

It’s a haystack.

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.
