Walking Tacos

I absolutely LOVE this meal, I don't know where it first came from but I have many memories eating this at family gatherings whether it was at Lake Powell on a houseboat or in Greer, AZ at my grandparents cabin. There are 43 cousins on my mom's side, add a bunch of adults and this was a great meal for a crowd if you need because it is so easy to double, triple or more, it is cheap, easy and oh so delish! I always serve it with Baked Tostitos. It really isn't that bad if you use fat free sour cream and baked chips. In fact, it is rather low points on the Weight Watchers scale, if you are into that kind of thing. My kids ask for seconds without fail every time we have this.
