Pro Tip: Check to see if chips are on sale near you. The individual bags can sometimes cost more because you’re paying for the convenience, but occasionally you’ll be able to find a deal or coupon for them! I find the small ones in dollar type stores for a quarter all the time. 

You can add as many toppings as you’d like to make these walking tacos exactly the way you’d like! You’ll want to make sure you’re making them right before you serve them. This isn’t one of those set it and forget it appetizer recipes! If you leave them sitting for too long, your chips could potentially get soggy – and nobody likes soggy chips!

Now, get your ingredients ready and let’s make this easy walking tacos recipe so you can see what a breeze it is!

Easy Walking Tacos

Easy Walking Tacos

  • 4 Individual Dorito's Bags
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup shredded fiesta blend cheese
  • 4 tbsp sour cream
  • 1/2 lb cooked taco seasoned meat of choice
  • 1 cup diced tomato
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced green and red peppers
  1. Open the bags of chips right before serving to decorate them with the toppings! 

  2. Serve immediately with a fork for easy enjoyment! 

Sometimes I prefer buying ‘fresh’ store bought salsa in refrigerated section near product instead.  It comes in hot and mild.  It’s fresh diced tomatoes, onion, cilantro, mild or hot peppers. It’s pretty amazing stuff! Perfect shortcut for tacos, salads sandwiches and more.

This recipe is designed for 4 servings but you could easily make as many as you wanted to!
