Easy Recipe for Walking Tacos

Running late? Don’t have time to put a full 5 course meal on the table?

Oh… who am I kidding? I don’t  cook  5 course dinners all the time. Wait, scratch that. Never. I love easy meals. Easy meals that are still delicious. We love having Tacos and Nachos at our house. And we have kids- boys. And did I mention that I love stuff that is easy?

  1. This is ingenious. I love the idea for my grandkids. Thank you so much for sharing at Share It One More Time. Cathy

  2. Great Idea. When I was growing up we only had taco salad with cool ranch doritos. This is a fun on the go way to enjoy that taco salad 🙂

  3. I haven’t had this in YEARS. Thanks for the reminder – maybe I’ll make myself some walking tacos this weekend.

  4. I love this idea- my grands will get such a kick out of it! Thanks for sharing it with us at Treasure Box Tuesday- pinned! 🙂

    Like others, I noticed there were questions about the meals being $5 total… perhaps pricing and coupons are a lot better where you live, but I find for example, this recipe to cost $5. This is the breakdown I came up with and TX is pretty reasonable price-wise…
    INGREDIENTS
    1 1/2 lb Ground Beef—– 1 lbs ground at Target can go on sale for 2.29
    2 tbsp Taco Seasoning– easy to get it free
    7 Lunch size bags Nacho Doritos, Cool Ranch Doritos and/or Fritos– these are 3/$1 unless an economy size package from Sam’s Club is bought and those run about $10 total
    Shredded Lettuce–$1
    Shredded Cheese–$1.75
    Diced Tomatoes–.49 for 1big one
    Jalapeno Slices–.50 for a cheap can
    Taco Sauce–.79 for cheap sauce
    Sour Cream, etc.–.79 for store brand….

    Can you share your pricing and stores/coupons you used? Definitely not trying to be resistant, but this cannot possibly work out to $5… unless it is one serving and you divided up the pricing in that sense…

    • I know that every one is going to have different prices.
      This is also based on pulling the items from your pantry when purchasing them on sale for free/cheap deals.

      I’m in Michigan and I based this on-
      Lettuce, Tomatoes, Jalapeno for free (From my garden),

      Taco Sauce is free at the most .50 cents
      Sour Cream- free-.50 cents
      Cheese- my stock up price is between Free- $1 (these are prices that we have paid here in Michigan and I have personally paid those prices).
      taco seasoning- free
      Ground Beef- $2-$2.50
      Doritos – $2 for the bag.
      These are the prices I pay and when I put together price per serving it is based off those prices.

      Hope that helps!!

  7. Thanks for the recipes. I’m just started budgeting my grocery bill. This will help out a lot. Thanks again!!
