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.
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.
TACO SALAD RECIPE WITH FRITOS
- Beans (canned black beans, homemade pinto beans…)
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Diced tomatoes
- Sour Cream
Optional *You can use ground beef instead of beans *It’s not allowed in this house, but you can add olives
How to assemble
Start by placing a generous handful of Fritos 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.
