Walking Taco Bar Ingredients
Once you have your bag of chips and beef taco filling, it’s time to think about piling on all of your favorite taco bar ingredients! Let the taco party begin and let your imagination run wild with bowls of assorted toppings such as:
- black beans
- chopped onions
- chopped tomatoes
- fresh heirloom tomato salsa
- homemade mango salsa
- homemade peach salsa
- refried beans
- shredded lettuce
- sliced jalapenos
- sour cream
Be sure to crush the chips in your bag before assembling your walking taco so they’re easy to eat. When dining on a Walking Taco plastic forks are the typical utensil to use and offering them in team colors makes for even more game day fun!
Frito corn chips or Doritos nacho chips both are common “portable chip bags” to serve at your taco bar party, the choice is yours. I chose Doritos for a little extra spice and flavor.
