Today we’re making a Midwest favorite, the walking taco!
Now, the walking taco can be semi-divisive. Most love it, and there’s not to love, but regional variants do exist. Here in Iowa, we usually use Nacho Doritos, a couple times I’ve tried the cool ranch, but I always have preferred the nacho cheese. In other parts of the Midwest, they use Fritos or corn chips, I haven’t tried this myself, but I’m sure it’s great. These different variants show the versatility of this recipe.
Much like all simple recipes, the walking is extremely customizable: type of chip used, toppings, etc. For example, I really like making an almost taco salad with mine. I crush the Doritos, add shredded lettuce, taco meat, tomatoes, and… ranch dressing. I know, I know, classic Midwestern move, but it is quite tasty. Anything you could put on a taco, burrito, enchilada, or chimichanga can go in a walking taco.
Just as the name implies, this is one of the best easy foods available. Easy to carry, easy to eat, easy to make another if your heart desires. I personally love this as an easy dinner after a long day of work, for family gatherings, for birthday parties, graduations, the list goes on and on.
All said, the walking taco is an essential recipe to know. And, to make a quick and easy recipe and faster and easier, we suggest using our Taco Seasoned Beef. This product is great for a variety of reasons, but to me, one of the best is that no thawing is needed. Just toss it in a pan or in the microwave and warm it up and you’re done! It’s pre-seasoned so the only thing you need to do is heat and eat.
