Updated this post about walking tacos a great party food 12/16. Check out Cooking for a crowd recipes for more ideas.
I am not sure if football is on as much at your house as it seems to be at ours. My husband and son won their Fantasy Football league this year and that must be why.
Last year they came in very last and I don’t remember all that much Football watching!!
With the playoffs and Superbowl around the corner, I thought I would share this idea of Walking Tacos. These walking tacos are definitely more of an idea than a recipe.
These are perfect for a graduation party too. So whether you are making walking tacos for 50 or 100 you can use this basic process.
How to make tacos in a bag:
Walking tacos would really be good for any casual occasion, even if you are tailgating. To this date, I have still served these to fewer kids than adults. It is such a great casual entertaining option and “heavy appetizer”.
We have made tacos for 10 and walking tacos for 50 it is just a matter of browning more meat and buying more chips. It is truly an easy way to feed a crowd.
Walking Tacos Ingredients —
- Ground Beef or Turkey
- Taco Seasoning (I buy in bulk)
- Individual Frito Bags or Individual Doritos Bags
- Taco Sauce & Hot Sauces
- Plastic Forks
How to Feed a Crowd Walking Tacos
WALKING TACOS FOR 50
For about 50 walking tacos (you will need to decide how many servings your crowd will eat. If your guests are hearty eaters allow for two servings each)
You can double even triple the recipe and it makes ahead. Then add it to your crockpot a few hours before the party.
What Should I Serve With Walking Tacos?
Put out all the toppings you would for a regular taco night.
- taco sauce
- different types of salsa
- sour cream
- black olives
- Black Beans I also put a pot of black beans on the stove for those who did not eat red meat or just wanted to add beans to their tacos.
What type of meat do I use for a walking taco?
Walking Tacos –Great Party Food
Because the house visit was only 1 hour, people only had one taco so the 3 lbs of meat easily made 35-40 walking tacos. My kids also loved them as I let them have that for dinner before the party. It would be a great kids meal at a party as well.
(UPDATE at my recent party there were far more hungry people and 7 lbs fed about 40 bags worth of the 2oz Fritos.)
