You might be wondering just exactly what are walking tacos, and I totally get your confusion. The first time I heard the term, I was puzzled too, because tacos seem pretty portable as is.
But after learning that they're just typical taco fixings added to a snack size bag of Fritos, I am totally in love with them. I mean they're easy to make and relatively mess-free -- what's not to love? Walking tacos are not only perfect for quicks meals before I have to get the kids to the sports practice of the day, but they're also a fantastic option for game day get togethers.
The Crock-Pot Triple Dipper is the perfect way to serve walking tacos. The three 1-quart mini Crock-Pots hold the perfect amount for a small crowd!
I filled mine up with seasoned ground beef (2 lb. browned ground beef + homemade taco seasoning to taste), Velveeta queso (16 oz. Velveeta + 1 can Rotel), and spicy black beans (2 cans black beans drained and rinsed + homemade taco seasoning to taste).
Additional toppings I had available were shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese, and sour cream. The Crock-Pot Triple Dipper also features three pockets that you can fill up with cutlery, tortilla chips, and more.
There really is no set-in-stone walking taco recipe. Just open a snack size bag of Fritos and add your desired toppings. (I like a little of everything.) Eat it straight from the bag, and the entire thing can be tossed when you're finished -- so simple!
Have you ever served walking tacos? I can see these being a big hit at birthday parties too!
