Walking tacos are a popular camping food, but now we present Walking Taco Nachos. This spin on the original can be made over the campfire or on a grill.

Loaded Camping Nachos

Let’s face it, tacos are one of the most popular foods out there. Taco options are pretty limited when it comes to camping. Many people are familiar with walking tacos. That is when you open a single-serving bag of corn chips and load it with taco meat, beans, cheese, and your other favorite toppings.
Walking tacos always leave me wishing the cheese could be melted and the size could be bigger.

Walking Taco Nachos Recipe

Since our most popular recipes are our grilled nachos and s’more nachos, I decided to turn walking tacos into walking taco nachos. This easy recipe goes together quickly and does not require you to cook taco meat. Get the full recipe at the bottom of this post.

Taco Nachos Close-Up

Our preferred way to make these camping taco nachos is in a foil pan that gets covered with foil. We like to make them in individual 8 by 8 inch foil pans so that each person can add their favorite toppings. This meal is fun to eat without utensils. It can get messy, but that adds to the appeal.

Personalized Nachos

This walking taco nacho recipe is very versatile. Our vegetarian daughter made hers without meat, but she opted for no extra toppings. Our son loaded his with sour cream, chopped onion, shredded lettuce, and chopped tomato. Other toppings could include jalapeños, salsa,

Grilled Taco Nachos

As with our other nachos recipes, it’s important to make sure the temperature of the campfire or grill is not too high or your nachos will burn on the bottom. When we cook nachos over the fire, we keep away from active flames. Coals are best!
