Walking Tacos, Tacos in a Bag, Locos Tacos – whatever you call them, they are the best thing ever for camping, reunions, and block parties. Plus, walking tacos are cheap and tasty, with the easiest clean-up ever—no plates required!
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:
- Ground beef
- Diced or shredded chicken
- Shredded cheese
- chopped lettuce
- Chopped tomatoes
- Sliced olives
- Diced onions
- Pico de gallo
- Sour cream
- Ranch dressing
- Cilantro lime dressing
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!
How to Make Walking Tacos (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 cup) directly to each of the bags.
- Add additional toppings, all to taste.
