How to make a walking taco, the only taco recipe you need at your Super Bowl party

Steamy Kitchen

The worst part of hosting any event is the clean-up. So why bother? Nachos, tacos, wings and all your favorite football snacks leave a big mess, so why not transition to an all-in-one, delicious solution to your messy post-party woes? 

The walking taco, which can also make itself at home in your lap, is perhaps the greatest game food and bar snack of all time, assembled completely in a personal bag of chips, i.e your transportable taco shell. 

While you don't really need a recipe to create a walking taco — just toss some shredded cheese, guac and chili into a bag of Fritos — use these walking taco recipes as your guide to create the only taco you really need on Super Bowl Sunday.
