Walking WHAT? Walking Tacos!!!

Ok, I don't know if this is a Nebraska thing or what, but it is genius, regardless!   Here is how I became smitten with walking taco's.  We had moved to Nebraska and we were at a high school football game with my dad.  (he is a sports broadcaster).  I sent my husband to the concession stand to pick up a cold drink and when he returned he had a smile on his face like a kid who just was handed a 10lb bag of candy for free!  He was donning 2 small bags of Doritos that were open and had a fork stuck in them.  He proudly announced he had gotten us each a "walking taco".  I had no idea what it was so he handed me the bag and what was inside was a mishmash of different taco toppings stacked neatly in layers on top of the crushed up Doritos.  So let me introduce you to the "walking taco".....

I know, I know, not the best photo, but I took it from the top so you could see what was inside!!  This one just had meat, cheese and sour cream.  You can add tomato, lettuce, guacamole, lime, olives, beans, the possibilities are endless.  How FUN are these for a kids party, or football game day?  You can do the same idea with Fritos, and chili and cheese!

You will need:

-1 lb ground beef (or however much you need for the amount of people you have)
-shredded cheddar or cheese of your choice
-taco seasoning for hamburger
-small bags of Doritos
-Toppings, sour cream, guacamole, tomato's, lettuce, beans, limes to juice, olives, onions, salsa, hot sauce, etc...

Brown your hamburger with seasoning.  Take your bag, crush up the dorito's inside, open the top, add toppings of choice and stick a fork in it!  You have your own walking taco!!!

I don't know why I think these are so genius, but I do.  My husband will practically roll over and play dead for them! :)

  1. I like the idea of doing them with Fritos - I make a taco casserole with the Fritos on top; this is just the reverse and portable.

  2. They are wonderful..My grandson's snack bar makes them and kids walk around with them and I've been seen walking with one or two as well..Fun snack and they satisfy your immediate hunger..I do think your picture is quick good!!!! Keep up the good work..Your foodie friend <3

  3. Yummy! I like mine with Fritos but Doritos would be goo, too!


  4. Stopping by from Newlyweds link up ~ I love Walking Tacos - but have never tried them with Doritos, just Fritos. I need to try them with the Doritos. Yum.
