Taco in a Bag

Perfect for hearty single servings while camping, this recipe for tacos in a bag is a popular meal among children and parents that don’t like doing dishes.

The concept is simple: an individual bag of chips, such as Fritos, Nacho Doritos, or similar, is topped with the ingredients of a taco. Such as meat, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, guacamole, salsa, etc.

When it comes to the meat it can be as easy or as hard as you make it depending on the type of camping. A basic taco meat recipe works well, or I like to use a chili recipe. If really strapped for time or resources you can even use canned chili. Another twist could be leftover pulled pork.
