Last Friday we arrived home after spending amazing weeks in Ecuador. The weekend was much needed to catch up with sleep, grocery shopping at Walmart and conquer a big stack of mail. As I was putting the last suitcase away, I felt we were officially in school season. I mean, the kids’ school bell will be ringing in only two weeks!

Being back-to-school means busy schedules and be running from one place to another. Piano lessons, soccer practices, you name it… This is why meal planning is a life saver! It gives us stress-free evenings and saves us time, effort and money. It really helps our home to focused on quality time with familia! (Download a meal plan calendar here in English and Spanish)

Hawaiian Haystacks Recipe

Hawaiian Haystacks is a favorite at home! This yummy dish allows us to get creative and add our special Latino touch! This meal is super quick and easy to prepare, especially when you only want to spend a few minutes in the kitchen. And it’s a great option if you are feeding a crowd!

I also love making Hawaiian Haystacks because everyone in the family can personalize to their tastes depending on what toppings they choose to add. If you have picky eaters like I do, this meal will make them happy. I can pinky promise you that! You only serve the chicken sauce over rice, add toppings and voilá, you have a delicious meal!

What you need

For this recipe that serves 4 people, you only need a few things:

  • 1 cup of rice
  • 1 can of Swanson® Premium Chicken
  • 2 cans of Campbell’s® Condensed Chicken Noodle Soup
  • 1 cup of cheddar cheese shredded

And the toppings…

For the toppings, the sky is the limit! I usually make sure to add assorted veggies and whatever I find in the pantry. This time I use: tomatoes, crispy chow mein noodles, black olives, carrots, green onions, drained crushed pineapple and green plantains or chifles!! All great options to add texture and some Latino flavor!


  1. Cook the rice.

  1. In a small pan, mix Campbell’s® Condensed Chicken Noodle Soup with Swanson® Premium Chicken. The combination of these two products will bring a mouthwatering flavor your family will love! Campbell’s® Condensed Chicken Noodle is a traditional family favorite and loved by kids for generations and Swanson® Premium Chicken is low fat, heart healthy and ready to use for quick and everyday meals.
  2. Add salt and pepper as you like. And stir over medium heat for 1 minute.

4. Add the chicken sauce over rice.

5. After placing toppings of choice, add some cheddar cheese shredded.

And… that’s it! Super easy, right? Enjoy!
