SunChips “Walking Tacos”

What’s your Halloween pre-trick -or-treat supper? Our tradition has always been to order pizza early, before going out at around 6:00 or 6:30. However, I just found a new alternative that’s delicious and imparts that playful touch that Halloween is known for – SunChips Walking Tacos.

We gave these a try this weekend and the verdict is in…they are a winner with both kids and adults, and I’m sharing the recipe below.

My daughter “modeled” her Halloween costume as she enjoyed her walking tacos, while my son opted for his every day look. We grown ups enjoyed ours in a “nachos” style.

The original recipe calls for chicken, but we love using traditional ground beef. I’ve included both version for you to try, plus you can find more recipes here:

SunChips Walking Tacos

  • 12 – single serving bags of SunChips garden salsa flavor
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 cups cooked, diced or shredded chicken {use rotisserie for convenience}
  • 1 packet {1.25 oz} taco seasoning
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 – 15 oz jar salsa

Combine chicken, water, seasoning, and salsa in medium sauce pan over medium heat. Simmer 8-10 minutes.

Open bag of SunChips, add 1/2 cup chicken mixture, and sprinkle with cheese.

For Beef Tacos:

Cook and brown 1 pound of ground beef. Drain and rinse beef and return to skillet.

Add 1 packet {1.25 oz} Fajita seasoning, and 1/2 cup water to meat. Cook over medium high heat until bubbly. Reduce heat and let thicken.

Serve as above, topping with cheese and salsa.

    Yummy recipe – I have tried it with Fritos but never with Sun Chips. Since they are a little lower in calories I am eager to try this. Plus it helps that I am starving while I read this……thanks for the post – hope I win :)
