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.
Let’s face it, tacos are one of the most popular foods out there. Taco recipes are pretty limited when it comes to camping.
Many people are familiar with walking tacos in a bag. 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 I want more than that small bag of chips.
Walking Taco Nachos Recipe
This easy recipe goes together quickly and does not require you to cook taco meat. We use canned chili.
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 Walking Nachos
This walking tacos camping 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, guacamole, or queso.
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!
