Easy Mexican Pile Ups

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

Today’s recipe is a twist on one of my family’s favorite meals, Hawaiian Haystacks.  These are called Easy Mexican Pile Ups. Since my family loves them so much and also enjoys Mexican food, I thought a Mexican version would be fun for a change.

The sauce base of this recipe is a simple ground beef/tomato sauce made with onion and taco seasoning.  You serve the sauce over rice along with the toppings of your choice. We used shredded cheese, corn, green onion, sliced olives, guacamole, and sour cream.  I did make a complete list of toppings I think would work and included that list in the recipe below. However, I am sure you all can come up with even more items that would be delicious on these Mexican pile ups.
