Tacos in a Bag - Our go-to Camping Dinner

Tacos in a bag have been our go-to camping meal for years! They're easy to make, totally customizable and a crowd pleaser among the kids AND the adults! This fun and easy twist on traditional tacos will have you munching and crunching in no time. So, grab your favourite ingredients and let's get started!

Ingredients for 4:
- 4 small bags of your favourite tortilla chips (we always do Doritos)
- 1 pound ground beef/turkey/chicken (or your choice of protein)
- 1 packet of taco seasoning
- Shredded lettuce
- Diced tomatoes
- Chopped onions
- Sliced jalapeños (if you like it spicy)
- Shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend works great)
- Sour cream
- Salsa (choose your preferred heat level)
- Guacamole or diced avocados
- Optional toppings: black olives, cilantro, hot sauce, or any other taco topping favourites

1. In a skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until browned. Drain any excess grease, then add the taco seasoning and water as instructed on the packet. Stir well and simmer for a few minutes until the flavours meld together.

2. Turn your taco bag sideways and cut open along the long end, then crush those chips!

3. Start layering your toppings. Begin with a generous scoop of the seasoned protein, followed by shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, chopped onions, jalapeños (if desired), shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa, and guacamole or whatever your heart desires!

4. Get creative! Add any additional toppings that tickle your taste buds. The more, the merrier!

5. Grab a fork or spoon, mix everything up in the bag, and make sure all the flavours and ingredients are well-distributed. It's like a taco fiesta in a bag!

Tacos in a Bag are perfect for camping, backyard parties, parties, game nights, or any time you're craving a fun and flavourful meal. Plus, the best part is the easy cleanup—just toss the bag when you're done! So, let your taste buds go wild and get ready for a handheld fiesta. Viva los tacos in a bag!
