Whether you are cooking for a tailgate party or a quick meal on the go, a walking taco is a hearty dish that is both entertaining and efficient. Walking tacos repackage the ingredients of a regular taco inside a bag of corn chips. Instead of taking small bites of a taco encased in a tortilla and risking spilling food everywhere, you eat a walking taco with a fork or a spoon, which makes it more convenient if you are not sitting at a table.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Individual portioned bags of corn chips
  • Frying pan
  • Minced meat
  • Taco seasoning packet
  • Onion
  • Salsa
  • Beans
  • Tomato
  • Lettuce
  • Cheese
  • Jalapeños
  • Sour cream
  • Knife

  1. 1

    Cook the minced meat in a large frying pan. As it begins to brown, mix in the packet of taco seasoning.

  2. 2

    Stir in chopped onion, salsa or beans, if desired, once the meat is cooked through. Remove the pan from heat.

  3. 3

    Prepare all of the ingredients that you will be putting on top of your walking taco. For example, dice tomatoes, shred lettuce and cut slices of jalapeño.

  4. 4

    Crush a bag of corn chips so that the chips are in small pieces. Cut off the top half of the bag.

  5. 5

    Assemble your walking taco. Scoop in the minced meat mixture and add whatever extra toppings you like. Use a fork or a spoon to mix it all together and eat your portable taco.
