Vegetarian Week: Haystacks

adapted from

1 Can Red Kidney Beans, Rinsed and Drained
1 Can Diced Tomatoes, Drained
1 Green Bell Pepper, Chopped
1 Onion, Chopped
1 Cup Salsa
2 Tablespoons Chili Powder
Salt and Pepper, To Taste
Fritos Chips
Spinach (or Lettuce)
Sour Cream
Cheddar Cheese

In a medium saucepan, combine beans, tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, salsa, chili powder, and salt and pepper.  Cook over medium heat until heated thoroughly.  To assemble, place chips on a plate, then spoon bean mixture on top of chips and top with spinach, sour cream and cheese.

This dish was so easy; once the veggies are chopped it only takes a few minutes until it all comes together.  You can easily adapt this recipe to your own taste by adding other taco fixings such as olives, corn, another variety of beans, or hamburger meat (but then it wouldn't be very vegetarian!).  Haystacks will definitely be in my busy-soccer-mom dinner rotation!
