I hadn’t seen my girlfriend, Keri, in awhile.
So when she posted on Instagram that she was going to be at Wilson Elementary School‘s Fun Fair today, I took the chance to stop by and spend some QT with her and her sons.
Not only did I catch up with a dear friend, I also discovered my new favorite dish: a “walking taco.”
It’s such a simple concept: you get a small bag of Doritos or Fritos, cut it open the long way, then fill it with taco meat and your favorite toppings. Then grab a fork and eat. It’s just a portable, fun, ingenious way to eat a taco.
Best part is there’s no cleanup, there’s no mess, there’s nothing to wash after. Brilliant!
So here’s how I ate it (above): I added shredded lettuce, cheddar cheese, salsa and ranch dressing. You can add peppers, tomatoes, olives, chopping onions, black beans, sour cream — really, whatever you want.
I’m telling you, this is a food revolution to me.
Guess what I’ll be bringing to the next potluck I’m invited to!
What a great idea!
The best things in life are the simple things. Very cool idea.
sounds sooo delish! Rather high on the sodium though.
CAT: Neat! Taco Bell already uses a Dorito shell for a taco…this is a cheaper version.
share it with a friend!
cut the bag exactly in half, split the chips, THEN add the goodies.
i’m kind of intrigued and horrified at the same time.
actually, we used to do something similar, back in HS/college (when we had no money, obv.) buy a bag of doritos at 7-11 and an order of nachos. dump the nachos and fill the cardboard chip container with cheese, chili and jalapenos (instead of just putting the toppings on like you’re supposed to). instant mega sized nachos with (marginally) better chips.
Growing up in Northern CA in the 70s, we had this All The Time at swim meets. Frito Pie: a bag of fritos, chili, and cheese. Awesome. I want to think they even served a variation at the Frito pavilion in Disneyland too….
We used to have those ate kiddie soccer games. It helps to give it a few punches to break up the chips if you are going to use a fork.
