How to Make Walking Tacos

I can’t believe I lived for thirty-six years of life without having a Walking Taco. I’m not sure if it’s regional or a trendy thing but a Walking Taco is the most satisfying cheat food you could have. Here I’m sharing how to make Walking Tacos. Okay guys, I know it’s not rocket science but easy and fun dinner ideas are what we do in my house.

Since quarantine started we have been strictly adhering to Taco Tuesday. I mean, what’s not to love. There’s tacos and you know what day of the week you’re getting tacos. Win/Win. Last week I spiced up Taco Tuesday with these Walking Tacos. 

How to Make a Walking Taco

You can use any chip you’d like, Fritos, Doritos, Tortilla. Crunch them at the bottom and then pour in the goodness. For ours I added ground beef, avocado, dark red kidney beans, salsa, cheese, sour cream, lettuce chives and lots and lots of cilantro. Pop in a fork and you’re good to go, literally.

The first place I tried a Walking Taco was at an amusement park. At the park they served them with nacho cheese and hey while I’m usually a fan of gooey goodness, I much preferred classic taco cheese and ingredients. You literally walk around, eating your taco in a bag. If it sounds awesome, it’s because it is. 

Give these a whirl one night for dinner and your family will have a lot of fun with them.
