One reason I’m not 100% convinced my children are actually mine is that they don’t like tacos.
A few weeks ago – you know, when we were 2 hours early for a fair that’s an hour away and were in a town that literally only has a general store so we had to drive 20 minutes to find the nearest restaurant – we went out for Mexican and while I had delicious Tacos Al Pastor, all 3 of them ordered…
Yeah, this is my life.
So making anything that even slightly resembles a taco is always risky.
We made these Walking Tacos last week mainly because I required a margarita (coming tomorrow!) for Big Brother and I can’t really have margarita without a taco. My kids LOVED them. They literally walked circles in the living while eating them. Because why sit with your Walking Taco when you can walk circles?
We ran out of Fritos after the first night so the next day, they put the rest of the taco meat on Cool Ranch Doritos.
These are super simple and are perfect for feeding a crowd. If you serve them with plastic utensils, you’ll have no clean-up to do!

- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 1.25 ounce taco seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 10 ounce can diced tomatoes with green chilis
- 1 15 ounce can Ranch Style beans (pinto beans in seasoned tomato sauce)
- 6 1 ounce packages corn chips
- shredded cheese sour cream, sliced green onions, for serving
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add beef and cook 6 - 8 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking it into crumbles. Drain if necessary. Stir in the taco seasoning mix, pepper, tomatoes, and beans. Bring to a boil; simmer uncovered 20 minutes or until the mixture has thickened, stirring occasionally.
Just before serving, open corn chip bags. Add beef mixture and desired toppings. Serve immediately.
