These Locos Tacos in a Bag are the best thing ever for camping, reunions, and block parties. They are cheap, tasty, and clean up is a snap. No plate needed!
Ok I know this recipe is everywhere— honestly it’s not as much of a “recipe” as it is an awesome idea. These tacos in a bag 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! They are perfect for camping, lake trips, picnics, or even for a quick, non-messy dinner. 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.
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 (reunions, girls/scout camps, 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! (Instagram #edwards2k14 to see some of our fun reunion adventures!)
- 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.
