Taco in a Bag

I have been in a cooking rut lately, so this morning I handed Miss V one of her binders from YCA and told her to pick out dinner and dessert.  She picked out one of her all time favorites, Taco in a Bag.

As with all YCA recipes you; Read It!, Place It!, Create It!

1 pound pre-cooked beef crumbles
1 pk taco seasoning (I use my own)
4 packages (2.5 oz) corn chips
2 cups lettuce, shredded
1 tomato, chopped
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup salsa (tonight we used Newman's Own Tequila Lime)

measuring cups
wooden spoon
cheese grater

Add taco seasoning to the ground beef and cook according to package directions.

With the bags unopened, gently crush the corn chips.  Snip the corners of the bags using scissors and slit open the bags along the edge.

Spoon equal amounts of the beef mixture, lettuce, tomato, cheese, salsa and sour cream into the bags on top of the crushed chips.

Serve in the bag and eat with a fork.

Makes 4 servings.

Miss V didn't want to crush the chips this time.

 I had mine on a plate with some spanish rice.

You can also take this on the go. Either for a picnic, beach time, soccer games, baseball games, basketball games, etc.... Keep the hot meat in a thermos and other ingredients in a cooler.

I adore this recipe...but we call them Walking Tacos. I have a friend who use to do "Grandkids Week" and keep all 12 of her grandchildren and do 'camp' for them at her house - yes - for a week!. This was a popular repetitive dish they all loved. Amazing idea!

Wow, what a very nice idea to have Grandkids week and making it "camp" style.
