Walking Popcorn Tacos

Walking Popcorn Tacos

Our walking popcorn tacos are a riff on the popular walking tacos that are served in a small bag of Frito chips or Doritos chips. The original recipe calls for cooked ground beef and beans, well seasoned and spooned over a single serving size of the chips. Topped with cheese, chives, maybe some sour cream and handed to you with a fork. It’s delicious and we’re not taking anything away from Fritos or Doritos (because heaven knows, we enjoy eating both of those types of chips!). But, we’re just gonna say that popcorn is seriously good here, too.

The appeal of this recipe is the contrast between the well seasoned taco meat and the crunchy chips. Usually, though, the beef is piled on top of the chips and they can get soggy. We don’t dislike that texture but wanted to have both the slightly softened and the still crunchy. So we chose the best of both worlds. We piled the beef on top of some popcorn but also added more popcorn on top for that extra crunchy flavor. The cheese sauce, though, is what really makes it. Popcorn topped with cheese sauce with seasoned taco meat? Yes!

We’ll leave the heat level up to you. Choose a mild salsa or a super spicy one depending on how fiery your like things. As for serving, the fun part of a walking taco is that it’s spooned into a chip bag for easy portability. No problem here because we just made our own portable cones. And if you want to prep ahead but don’t want things to get soggy, just lay out the beef, cheese sauce and popcorn, buffet style and let everyone assemble their own cones.
