Enjoy all the ingredients of a taco in a portable bag.

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.


Step 1

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

Step 2

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

Step 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 jalapeno.

Step 4

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


Step 5

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