Walking Tacos

Walking Tacos

I was first introduced to Walking Tacos about 2 years ago when they were for sale at a Relay for Life that I was participating in with my family. They are a great meal because you dont wind up with any dirty dishes - and they are portable during this busy time of the year. I know the idea has been around for a while, but it just registered with me that it's a fun, easy, and very versatile meal to take to a family... especially a family with growing boys!

All you do to make Walking Tacos is buy individually packaged Doritos (or Fritos to make them gluten-free), and instruct your recipient to Open the bag, Crush the chips, and Add their favorite toppings from the ones that you sent along.

I decided to take this meal to a family this week, so here's what I have planned to send along for fillings:

  • 1 lb. Cooked ground beef (with a can of rinsed and drained black beans added)
  • Shredded cheese
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Salsa
  • Trader Joe's Corn salsa
    (Maureen from TakeThemAMeal.com introduced me to this product and it's SO GOOD! Your friend will love you for including a jar of this salsa)

And that's all! I'm sending disposable forks, so this meal will have zero clean up. I'm also sending along some watermelon and brownies to round out the meal.

I haven't made my meal yet, but here's a helpful photo that will show you the final product.


P.S. You can add seasoning to your taco meat, or just use a little salt and pepper. For each lb. of meat I add 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp paprika and 1/4 tsp chili powder.
