Low Mess Tacos

This simple meal goes by various names like Walking Tacos or Marching Tacos. I first came across this when daughter was in Color Guard/Marching Band, hence the Marching Tacos name. No need for plates or worrying about taco shells cracking and spilling contents! It is a mobile meal with simple cleanup; throw the empty bag and plastic fork away when done.

All the prep can be completed at home and placed into containers for storing in the fridge until needed.


 1 pound ground beef
 Diced onion
 1 package taco seasoning (may require water)
 Shredded lettuce
 Diced tomatoes
 Shredded cheddar cheese
 Taco sauce of desired heat (mild/medium/hot/fire/lava/surface of sun/etc.)
 Snack sized bags of corn chip such as Fritos or Doritos


Cook ground beef and onion together thoroughly then follow directions on package for adding taco seasoning. Prepare all of the other ingredients in separate containers with lids for easy storage and transportation.

To serve: Open top of chip snack bags and crush chips inside bag. Add meat, lettuce, tomato, cheese, and sauce to bag. Stir. Eat out of bag with a fork.

Serves: 6

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
