TikTok Walking Taco Chips
Doritos are one of the more common mini chip options for walking tacos. However, any type of chip that provides the crunch and goes with the flavor does well.
Try corn chips, tortilla chips, cool ranch Doritos, or even nacho cheese Doritos combined with a traditional taco recipe.
There is no shortage of favorite taco toppings for Mexican-inspired food. Creating a taco bar with favorite toppings and chip bags ensures that everyone can pick their favorites.
We suggest black beans, refried beans, pinto beans, green onions, green chiles, diced white onion, hot sauce, chunky sauce, black olives, and all of the regular taco fixings.
Other than a ground beef mixture, try chopped or ground chicken to mix the protein.
