I was reading on Tammy’s Recipes (see link in sidebar) and her  shared recipe theme this week was Lettuce!  She featured a really yummy looking salad or two there, but i cannot take pictures like her, but thought I would try to share my recipe and picture of haystacks. i never quite make them the same way,  and everyone makes them a little differently.
I made a pot of chili  and it was repurposed into these haystacks…
Shredded lettuce
Grated cheese
Cooked rice
Cooked taco meat, beans, or chili or whatever, you can use just seasoned beans as well, black, pinto or whatever kind you like. Mine this time was cooked meat, cooked pinto beans that I had frozen and added with one bag of tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, salt and a can of green chilies and 5-6 cloves of garlic.
Sliced sweet pepper (if you want)
sour cream
Salsa or taco sauce
Chopped tomatoes are nice too, I did not have any this time
Crushed saltines or crushed corn chips- did not have any of these and liked it still!
Last night I used some El Pato Jalapeno sauce for  taco sauce and tonight, I just dashed a little Tapitio over it. It was spicy!   It is really good and filling! I have seen people use riced potatoes on it as well or cheese sauce instead of grated cheese, you can pretty much  vary it any way you want!
