Walking Taco


This was one of my grade school favorites. I don’t know why I didn’t continue making them as I got older. That changed a couple weeks ago when I made chili and only had Fritos instead of crackers. I put the Fritos on top and it all came back to me!

I decided my kids should experience the delicious Walking Taco so I made them for dinner. They are just as delicious as I remember. I made a couple tweaks just based on what I had in my house, but scrumptious anyhow.

Have you had a Walking Taco? If not, you have to try them. If you have, make them again!
