My husband recently admitted that he checks “the blog” to find out what we are having for supper each night, so I thought I’d better blog a change in our menu (love you babe!)…
Since I need to leave for an appointment as soon as Ben gets home I decided to go with Haystacks tonight and Hungarian Goulash tomorrow. And to answer the question “What is a Haystack?” here is the basic idea:
- Taco Meat (ground beef or turkey with taco seasonings)
- Cooked Rice
- Corn Chips (we like to use scoops)
- Lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, ranch dressing…whatever you normally put on tacos
Process of builiding your “stack on your plate (in this basic order):
- Small scoop of rice
- Small Scoop of cheese
- Small Scoop of meat
- Corn Chips around the edges
I say “small scoops” because by the time you have everything on your plate…it’s HUGE! I first learned about Haystacks at a Ladies Retreat for church. Needless to say, we had haystacks about once a week for about two months afterwards! It’s been ahwile since I’ve made them, but it’s perfect for a quick meal.
Let me know if you have tried haystacks and any variations your family enjoys!
