"These were great Beverly. Another quick idea would be to just use canned chili of your liking and, of course, add sliced olives! I can't seem to make anything in the Mexican food family without adding olives lol! Thanks for the fun idea"

"Fun and tasty, my only advice is to hold bag sideways, clip tiny amount from two corners, then slide scissors across from one clipped corner to other clipped corner to make opening. Opening then is larger and easier to eat from. Crush chips a bit before making opening. This for those who have never had walking tacos. Enjoy"
