Easy Walking Tacos, aka Taco in a Bag

Taco in a bag is one of those items where you feel like you have hit the jackpot when you are at an all-day sports event with your kids! Seriously, we are very judgement concession customers but if you have this on the menu, we will give you 5 stars!

And, really, this is super easy to make when you think about it, which also makes it something perfect to pull together for a concession item. Just brown some ground beef and quickly chop up the tomatoes and lettuce.

If you’re making for home, just grab the Fritos bags, or my kids have also eaten with Doritos bags, and let the kids make their own “bag” with whatever their hearts desire! Easy peasy and everyone is happy!
