Walking Tacos


  • Single-portion bags of Fritos or an organic/GMO-free corn chip alternative (like Erin prefers! Make sure there is enough for everyone to have at least one!)
  • 1-2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1-2 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes
  • lettuce (shredded) - optional
  • cheese (grated) - optional
  • sour cream - optional
  • tomatoes (diced) - optional
  • 1 red onion (diced) - optional
  • sliced avocados or guacamole - optional
  • pico de galo - optional
  • salsa - optional


  1. Brown ground beef with taco seasoning. Add black beans and a can of Rotel once the meat is thoroughly cooked and no pink remains. I’ll sometimes soak and cook dry beans when we’re making these at home, but for campouts, we like the convenience of canned.
  2. Let the meat mixture cool slightly before serving, so it’s not too hot to handle.
  3. Place the rest of the toppings in separate bowls, so that each person can build their own taco.
  4. To assemble, carefully open one end of the bag, scoop some taco meat inside, and then add your favorite toppings: lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, avocados, black olives, etc.
  5. Grab a fork and dig in!
