Hay Stack Supper

Very popular with the Amish in Holmes County. Here are the components to the dish. You decide how much or little you will add to your dish. You even put your own flavor of foods in your area onto the dish.

Crushed crackers.
Cooked rice
Corn Chips ( I prefer Doritos)
Taco meat or just cooked hamburger
Melted cheese
Peppers/hot pepper/banana peppers
Tomatoes(chopped up)
Sour cream
Salad dressing

Layer the ingredients as seen on the list. Nice thing about a haystack is that you pick how much and what you want on the dish. These ingredients complement each other very well.
