Walking Tacos
This is a clever idea for a kids' party or a fun dinner or lunch. If you add enough veggies and serve with something healthy on the side, you don't have to feel guilty about an occasional walking taco!

We also like to assemble the taco salad ingredients on a plate, drizzle with a dressing of half ranch, half salsa, and top with crushed tortilla chips for a delicious and fairly healthy taco salad without the bag.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning mix (homemade or store-bought)
  • Chopped tomato
  • Shredded lettuce (I like shredded hearts of romaine)
  • Chopped onion or green onions
  • Cooked corn
  • Chopped avocado
  • Shredded cheese (Mexican blend, cheddar, or your favorite)
  • Sliced black olives
  • Sour cream
  • Salsa or picante sauce
  • Individual lunch-sized bags of Doritos or corn chips


  1. Brown the ground beef and drain.
  2. Add the taco seasoning mix, cooking according to directions.
  3. To assemble: Break the chips before opening the bag. (Best to gently crush but not pulverize!) Open the bag of chips, being careful not to tear down the side, as this is your bowl!
  4. Add toppings of choice.
  5. Leave a little room at the top of the bag so you have room to mix.
  6. Grab a fork and dig in!
