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.

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. )

I have made haystacks for many years. Like many others, I prefer home cooked beans with onions, garlic, various seasonings and cooked for at least 3 hours to make a nice soft bean. (Black beans are my favorite). Sometimes instead of the chips, or along with them, I cook up some brown rice. It is an easy and can be healthy dish...just depends on the ingredients you use.
