Maybe Matilda: Walking Tacos

Walking Tacos

As far as quick and easy dinners go, Walking Tacos simply cannot be beat. They're a favorite at our house, and one of my go-to meals for those busy evenings when I'm positive all I have time for is a bowl of cereal (foodies everywhere just died a little inside). 

Walking Tacos, perfect quick dinner for busy nights!

Even at its longest--if you make various elements of this dinner from scratch--we're talking 30-40 minutes of prep time. But I sped it up big time when I remade this favorite of ours this week by using canned chili . . . and had dinner ready in less than 10 minutes from start to finish. That sort of timeline really speaks to me. Less time cooking = more time reading. Win.

Of course homemade chili is going to be so much yummier. But if you're in a rush? Canned will substitute just fine.

And the most fun part of the meal, of course, is serving it straight out of fun-size chip bags. Kids love being able to assemble it themselves--they get to add their own chili to the chips, pile it up with toppings, and eat it right from the bag. 

Hopefully my grandmother, who is appalled at serving food straight from pots or pans and always puts everything in pretty little serving dishes, is not reading this post. I'm sorry Grandma.

Walking Tacos--perfect quick and easy weeknight dinner!
Honestly about 10 minutes max from the moment you open the pantry door to having dinner on the table. So fast, super fun to make, and just delicious.

Walking Tacos

fun-size bags of corn chips (1+ for each person)
2 cans chili (or make some from scratch, if you have the time!)
1 tomato, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Heat chili according to package directions on the stovetop. Meanwhile, prep remaining ingredients. 

To assemble, open chip bags. Add 1-2 generous scoops of chili to each bag, and top with remaining ingredients to taste. Be careful--the bags might get hot!
