I omitted the rice, because I felt it would be overkill with the chips. So I served it like a chili, scooped up with tortilla chips. I used white/dark chicken. (It's cheaper.) Didn't find it too bland; family devoured it. I will definitely make this again.

I loved having the pinto beans and chicken in this hearty dish, but DH and I both felt it was quite bland. After increasing the cumin to 1 tsp, adding 1/2 tsp crushed red peppers and 3 tbs. chopped jalapenos, DH said it was very good, but could have been hotter. I thought it was hot enough with the additions I made. The second day, I added chicken broth to the leftover haystacks and it made a great soup, topped with crushed chips. Thanks for a good and easy recipe, Barb.
