Walking Tacos Recipe

Walking Tacos are small bags of corn chips like Fritos filled with taco or nacho toppings. Each bag is meant to be an individual portion that is portable—hence “walking.”

The bag is the perfect vessel for holding toppings like ground beef with taco seasoning, tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, or whatever you love on your tacos. It’s not meant to be a meal (though why not?) but a tasty post-school snack or party treat. Dig in with a fork or your fingers, which will be messy and that’s half the fun.

Smart Tips for Making Walking Tacos

  • Look for 3.5-ounce Frito bags sold individually next to the checkout counter at gas stations, pharmacies, or supermarkets. The bulk boxes found at stores like Costco hold one-ounce bags, which are too small. They are a little pricey, but I’ve also seen packages specifically made for Walking Tacos available in bulk for super fans of Walking Tacos or if you’re serving it on an extra special occasion.
  • I always make double the meat sauce so that I can have prepped taco or quesadilla filling ready in my freezer for future meals. Transfer the leftovers into a zip top bag, label the bag, and freeze for up to six months.
  • In the below recipe, I suggest topping the Walking Tacos with seasoned ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, cilantro, and jalapeño peppers. Pick whatever toppings you like. Salsa, black beans, queso, guacamole or avocado, crema, pickled red onions, thinly sliced radish—there are so many delicious options.
  • Don’t love Fritos? Use Doritos or even Takis.
