What is a walking taco casserole?
You may be wondering what this casserole even is if you've never heard of a walking taco. A walking taco is usually assembled in a small bag of Fritos chips. On top of the chips is all of the taco essentials: beef, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, etc. Assembling in the bag makes it easy to walk around with it, hence the name "walking taco."
Where do I find keto chips?
I am in love with these Hilo brand keto chips. I find them at Costco but they can be found online as well. They are perfectly seasoned and crunchy! If you cannot find the Hilo brand keto chips, you can make your own with low carb tortillas and then season them with taco seasoning.
You could also use my recipe for keto tortilla chips.
