Walking Tacos

1 lb Ground Beef
1 pkt. taco Seasoning Mix
Tomato, chopped
Lettuce, shredded
Onion, chopped
Shredded Cheese
Sour Cream
Taco Sauce or Salsa
Individual Lunch-sized Bags of Doritos

Brown ground beef, drain.
Add Taco seasoning mix according to directions on packet.

TO ASSEMBLE: Using scissors, cut a slit in the side of a bag of Doritos. Squeeze the bag to crumble the Doritos inside.

Layer taco meat and other ingredients as desired on top of crushed Doritos in the bag. Add anything else you like on your “taco,” such as black olives or jalapeno peppers. Note: You might want to use a napkin to hold the bag, since the taco meat will probably be hot at first.

Grab a fork and eat right out of the bag!
