How to Make Walking Tacos (All the Fun But None of the Mess)! by Christine Jones
Do you ever feel like you're in a weeknight dinner rut? When I want to change up our weeknight routine and inject some fun into our night, I turn to Walking Tacos. Walking Tacos are tacos in a FRITOS® bag. I mean are you kidding me?! My kids think I am the coolest mom when I make this for them. Best of all it's super easy and no crazy mess to clean up at the end of the night.
Here’s how you make them:
- Simply prepare your favorite taco recipe (the Old El Paso™ seasoning mix is my family's favorite and can be found in most supermarkets).
- Lay out your family’s favorite fix’ins such as lettuce, cheese, rice, salsa, sour cream and, of course, some individual size FRITOS® bags.
- Before you open the FRITOS® bags, break up the chips with your hands.
- Then comes the fun part! Open the bag and add in your taco meat and the toppings of your choice.
You still get the crunch of a traditional taco shell but without the insane mess of the taco falling apart while you’re eating it. Best of all your kids will love it and there are no dishes to wash at the end of the night. I make this for my 15-year-old son and his friends a lot and it's always a hit with the hard-to-please teen crowd!
