When the craving hits for a delicious walking taco, now you don’t have to wait until the next sporting event! We’ve created an incredibly simple and tasty way
What are Walking Tacos?
The main difference between a walking taco and a normal taco is that it is normally served in a bag rather than a tortilla shell. This means that walking tacos are easier to eat while you are active, it also means that there is less clean up afterwards!
Walking tacos are perfect for sporting games, parties or any occasion you are on your feet and socializing.
How to Make Walking Tacos
Walking tacos are actually very simple to make. All you really need to do is put in your favorite taco ingredients and seasonings along with some tortilla chips into a potato chip bag and crunch them up.
