It’s essentially a “taco in a bag” that you can eat on the go, without any dishes and simply using your favorite taco ingredients in a chip bag. They get their name from the ease of being able to walk around with and eat.

There are so many ways you can change this recipe to fit what you want to eat or feed your family. You could use a variety of chips including corn chips, spicy Cheetos, or even plain tortilla chips rather than seasoned Doritos.

How do you make Walking Tacos?

In a medium skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain excess fat and add taco seasoning according to directions. 

Just before serving, cut open chip bags. Set aside a few tortilla chips from the bag so they’re not all under the toppings and you’ll add them back in after all of the toppings. Add beef mixture, cheese, salsa and sour cream.  If you’d prefer your chips to be more bite size, either lightly squeeze the bag before cutting it open or once it’s fully assembled. Serve with a fork and enjoy!

They’re that easy and everyone’s going to love them!
