One of our family go to meals is tacos. We pretty much love them. I am often trying to revamp our family favorite meal into other types of recipes.
So far we have added Taco Casserole and Taco Soup.
Now we have another taco inspired recipe for family dinner. This one is amazing and was an instant winner with the whole family!
Meet Frito Taco Stack Ups.
Well, hello there my delicious little friend. You are like a delightful fiesta on top of possibly the world's best chip ever. So, yeah I like Fritos.
Fritos are the base for this taco revamp. The taco meat mixture has a little more umph than regular taco meat. The pinto beans and corn kind of rock this dish. Adding corn to a basic taco dish really makes it yummy. Then just like a taco, you top this lovely taco stack up with shredded lettuce, cheese, sour cream, and a splash of hot sauce.
Yeah, it is perfect.
This meal also can be portable simply by opening a lunch-sized bag of Fritos and serving all the makings in the bag and dropping in a spoon. Bam! Taco in a bag.
Anyway you make it, it is yummy and family friendly.
