What’s Cooking Wednesday: Haystacks

In my denomination, we have several foods that are “native” to us, so to speak. One of those is my favorite — haystacks.

When I first met my husband (and my non-Adventist friends) and I suggested we make haystacks for a meal, they all looked at me like I was crazy and asked, “What??”

And so, I told them. And, they loved it. Now, haystacks is one of our favorite quick meals. It’s easy to make, it’s fun and it’s DELICIOUS. I’m going to have to put this on my menu for the week now. I will warn you, though, this can get big VERRRY quickly. I always seem to forget that, and then I have this massive pile on my plate.

We make ours with chili beans, but you can use anything. I also like refried beans on it. Yum. We also don’t use cheese or sour cream (Well, I don’t. My husband sometimes puts cheese on his.), although I’m adding them in the ingredients. Really, you can put anything that sounds good to you on this! Be creative, and make it your own. :)

Ingredients:
Fritos (The number of bags you need will depend on how many you’re feeding. We use most of one bag.)
2 small cans or 1 large can of chili beans
Lettuce
Tomatoes
Olives
Onions
Shredded cheese
Sour cream
Salsa

Directions:
Heat up beans in sauce pan. Put Fritos on plate, then add toppings, starting with the beans. Enjoy!
