Walking Tacos


This has been a family favorite ever since our life got crazy chasing kids around. Quick and easy to make, kids love it, and there is no cleanup. The meat can be made up in advance, so when it's time to eat, just heat up the meat and you are ready to go. Easy enough to eat in the car on the way to soccer practice on a busy night!

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix

  • 6 (1.75 ounce) packages nacho cheese-flavored corn chips (such as Doritos®)

  • 1 (8 ounce) package taco cheese blend

  • 2 tomatoes, diced

  • 1 cup shredded lettuce

  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain and discard grease. Mix taco seasoning into the beef.
