I mean you can't really call this a recipe can you? For one it is not a haystack. If you left the Fritos in the bag and added the ingredients you have a typical street taco. I just threw everything into a bowl and mixed it up and ate is as a salad.

this has been out as a walk-in taco for more than 15 years. A Haystack is a Carmel and Cocconut candy.

This was so easy, tasty and fun to play around with. I used 2 cans of chili, but different brands so the flavor wasn't overwhelming and the leftover chili is frozen for another day. Thanks for the recipe!

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.

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 call this Frito Pie at home. This recipe is a staple in our home. It is the prefect quick meal on a busy night. You can customize it with so many different toppings and meat options.

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.
