Reviews for Walking Tacos
"i loved idea and have had these many times - but this recipe has 1017 mg of sodium... wow! we used reduced sodium chili seasonings... and no salt corn chips (speciality and health food stores sells these kind of corn chips"
"always loved Frito pie, so this Frito pie to go is perfect."
"I made these for my sons party when he returned from Afghanistan and all the guys loved them. Perfect for all and I followed your recipe Beverly. I didn't change anything at all and I will be making a bunch of these next month again when he comes home for a small vacation. Thank-you!!!"
"This is a family favorite. This is a classic recipe that has been around a while. We love how easy it is to customize."
"These sound so fun and good. I will have to try them soon. Love the idea of eating them outside with margaritas."
"This recipe is perfect for adapting all sorts of ways."
"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"
"The High School Booster Club serves these at sporting events. Kids love them."
"Here in Texas we call these frito pies."
