What’s a Taco in a Bag?
Ready to have your mind blown? All you have to do to enjoy tacos in a bag is open up an individual size bag of nacho Doritos, layer on your toppings, grab a fork and enjoy!
Sometimes we will switch things up and make “Navajo Tacos in a Bag” by using Fritos instead of Doritos and Chili instead of ground beef… seriously SO tasty. Maybe one day I will get those on here too. 🙂

Places to Serve Tacos in a Bag
There are so many ways to enjoy this yummy meal. We make these almost every time we go camping because of the fact that they are so ridiculously easy. We cook up the beef ahead of time and just re-heat it when we are ready to eat. Boom. Dinner is done and there is no mess.
This is also a great dish for the masses if you are hosting a reunion, girls/scout camps, or block parties. It is relatively cheap to make and it isn’t hard to make bulk amounts of everything– again, clean-up is a snap, which is a MUST for big groups. We just had these at our big family reunion and of course, they were a big hit!
How to Make Tacos in a Bag
- Open each bag of Doritos.
- You may crunch up the Doritos for easier eating or keep the chips big.
- Add about 1/6 of the taco meat (about 1/4 c.) directly to each of the bags.
- Add additional toppings, all to taste.
