Walking Tacos

A few years ago when we were at the Strawberry Festival I ate a Walking Taco, a bag of Fritos into which taco meat and toppings were added. You just grab a fork and eat straight out of the bag. I loved it and looked forward all year to going back to the Strawberry Festival the next year so I could buy another one. Only, no body was selling them the next year. I was so disappointed!

We eat taco salad very frequently in our home and recently I decided to have some fun and make the Walking Tacos likes I'd had at the Strawberry Festival. All I did was cut open the bags and add our usual taco meat and toppings. It was a little different and therefore a little fun. You can either cut the bag like the picture above or just open it at the top, like they did at the festival.

mmmmm! Those look really good. We had regular ol' tacos last night, but I think the next time I make them, I'll have to try this. Thanks for the great idea!

That is such a cool idea! I can imagine kids really getting a kick out of that. :-)

I just found your website while searching for "walking tacos." It's just become by new favorite site! Our 4-H club is considering selling W.T.s at our local fall festival. Any suggestions for pricing or helpful serving hints? Thanks a bunch!
Love the site -

Oooh! I love these. They remind me of girl's camp when I was a teenager. Thanks for reminding me.
