Meal In A Dish
We all love food and this is a recipe I tried solely because of it's name. It sounded so appealing and intrigueing that it went on my list of must make recipes. Since it is a one pot meal, it's a great time saver, looks good and is economical to boot. Mexican Haystack is as delicious as it sounds and has become a hot favourite for spur of the moment parties.
