Reviews for Camping Haystacks
"My family loved this. It was tasty and fun and gluten-free. It's great for families with a lot of foot sensitivities, since each family member can skip the ingredients they can't eat. They loved putting together their own stacks. We added onions and hot sauce, and did Fritos corn chips as a special treat. We haven't used it camping yet, but are really looking forward to that next summer. Having done a lot of outdoor meals, I recognize this one as easy and fun, but with to comforting warmth (w/ the chili) often needed to fill children and teens in cool evenings while living out of doors."
"Are Haystacks a cookie or a candy?? Please reply"
"I used to eat this as a kid. If you are on a budget you can substitute sour cream for ranch dressing sitting in the fridge and skip the salsa and olives if you don't care for them as i didn't. It tastes better than this recipe to me."
"If you make this as a "Walking Taco" you can take it hiking. Just put the other ingredients inside a frito chip single serving bag."
"We've always called this frito pie. A good meal in a pinch with onions and mexican blend cheese."
"I grew up having these in boarding school and still make them for my family today. They are super easy and you can make them many different ways."
"mlujdu !!! REALLY?!?!... do you not have better things to do with your time!"
"We call these "Frito Boats"... We slice down the long side of a frito single serve bag. Scoop in the chili, you can add what you like, IE: sour cream, cheese, onions, etc. We eat them camping, but they started at the snack shack during race season. Love them! (oh, I just don't get why some people rate a recipe they a: have never tried; or b: that they would prefer to make so many changes to it that it actually might be called something else. )"
