Walking Tacos

Ok I know this recipe is everywhere— honestly it’s not as much of a “recipe” as it is an awesome idea that we love. These Walking Tacos are just too good to not share here on FFR! I don’t even know why it has taken us so long to get them on here.

We have made these for years in our family! There are so many ways to enjoy this taco salad in a bag —it is truly one of the most versatile and easy recipes ever.

What are Walking Tacos?

Ready to have your mind blown? All you have to do to enjoy walking tacos is open up an individual size bag of nacho Doritos, layer on your toppings, grab a fork and enjoy. No plate needed!

Sometimes we will switch things up and give these tacos a southwest spin by using Fritos instead of Doritos and chili instead of ground beef… seriously SO tasty.

Toppings for Walking Tacos

There are so many different ways to enjoy tacos in a bag. Here are some of my favorite toppings:

Places to Serve Walking Tacos

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!

    I finally convinced the guys at the the local pub to add these to the menu and they can’t keep up with the business they generated. Poor kids know them well and the fancier types get to feel the buzz of the streets. Lol.
    I’ve been eating these since 1986 when Cool Ranch Doritos came out, but no matter the flavor of Doritos/ or even Fuegos if ya like spice and also may be my favorite.
    *****EXPERT TIP*****

    ****CUT THE BAG DOWN THE SIDE-DO NOT OPEN IT FROM THE TOP LIKE USUAL*****

    YOU’RE WELCOME
    AND ENJOY SOMETHING GREAT BECOME EVEN BETTER. I JUST CHANGED YOUR LIFE! LOL

    A hit with the whole family! My nine year old thought it was the coolest thing ever to eat right out of the chip bag, and I’m a fan of less dishes to wash. 🙂
