This Walking Tacos recipe is such a nice and easy idea for any party.

Just pick up a bunch of snack sized bags of Doritos or Fritos and add a few other toppings for your guests to choose from.

I love that each person has the ability to customize their own Walking Tacos!

  1. These would be perfect for my kids birthday party. No matter how picky the guest are there should be something that they will like. OH and Bonus is the clean up would be so easy! THANKS

    I’m thinking about doing this for my twin girl’s birthday party in August. We are doing a picnic theme so this is perfect!! Thanks, I am doing beef and chicken…

    • What a perfect idea for a picnic theme! I should try it with chicken too, thanks for the idea!

      • I cook my chicken in the crock pot…For a crowd I would use a big package of boneless skinless chicken thighs, and 3-4 chicken breast too, 1 jar of your favorite salsa(i like salsa verda), and 1 packet of taco seasoning. Then just cook it on low for 6 hours. I use frozen chicken or if thawed I add a little chicken broth to the bottom.

  3. I stumbled across your site trying to find ideas for hosting our BBQ mystery party. It is hard thinking about feeding your guests and keeping things warm and fresh. What a great idea to have them make their own! It is also nice that the bags double as bowls so there is less clean up. Very creative!

  4. You also can do that with chili !

  5. This is how we ate Frito Pie at the ball park when I was a kid! If the bags are ‘tall’ I would suggest cutting them down the side. Makes it a little easier to eat.
