Says Carrie, the mum behind Eating On A Dime: ‘The kids just love the fact that they are eating tacos in a bag. The first time they had them, they kept asking, “So no plate? No bowls?” It was hilarious. We kept telling them, nope. We just are eating tacos in a bag.
‘Once they get used to it, they loved it! Plus, I love that I don’t even have dirty plates to wash! It is the perfect dinner for crazy busy weeknight meal… or a family party… or just because.'
She adds: I have been asked several times what are walking tacos, and the answer is simple. You just need a single serving of chips, some kind of meat, and some toppings. You cut open the chips and pour in your ingredients and enjoy! Yes, it is that simple. We make these on busy nights and for birthday parties.
‘Usually we end up with left over taco meat or left over chili and I make this walking taco recipe. If I have leftover meat, I often freeze it. It’s perfect to pull out of the freezer on busy nights for this meal. Having a few things in the freezer has really helped us. Dinner time can be so hectic but not with this easy meal!’
It’s genius! The idea has gone down a hit with Aussie mums, making it the biggest new obsession in family cooking.
‘This is such a good idea for camping too!’ said one mum. Added another: ‘Did someone say no washing up? Sign me up!’
