Haystack Recipe

15 Minute no fuss dinner that everyone will enjoy. Make tonight easy and delicious with Haystacks.

Growing up SDA 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…. 

Its a haystack

Haystack dinner

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. 

Its the Frito chips. I’m real serious on this one. You can’t use tortilla style, you can’t use Doritos…No  

You 100% have to use Frito Chips

Ingredients

  • Frito Chips
  • Beans (canned black beans, homemade pinto beans…)
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Salsa 
  • Sour Cream

Optional *You can use ground beef instead of beans  *Its not allowed in this house, but you can add olives 

How to Assemble

Start by placing a generous handful of Frito chips on the plate and crush with the heal of your palm. 

Add beans (or ground beef), next add cheese, lettuce, diced tomatoes, salsa and sour cream. 

By the end of this you’ll realize that even though you thought you were adding small amounts… you in fact 

made a giant stack… A Haystack if you will
