### Ingredients
– 1 lb ground beef

### Instructions

2. **Season the Meat**: Add the taco seasoning to the beef along with the recommended amount of water. Simmer according to the packet instructions.
3. **Prepare the Chip Bags**: Carefully open the bags of nacho cheese-flavored chips.
4. **Assemble the Tacos**: Spoon the seasoned ground beef directly into each chip bag.

### Notes
– **Chip bag size**: The individual bags of chips should be large enough to hold all the taco toppings comfortably. Personal-sized bags generally work best for this recipe.
– **Meat alternatives**: If you prefer, you can substitute ground beef for ground turkey, chicken, or even plant-based meat alternatives to cater to different dietary needs.
– **Make ahead**: You can cook and season the ground beef ahead of time. Store it in the refrigerator and reheat it just before assembling the walking tacos.

### Suggestions
– **Kids’ Party**: Walking Tacos are an excellent choice for children’s parties. Setup a topping bar where kids can customize their own taco bags.
– **Healthier options**: For a lighter version, you can use baked chips and incorporate more veggies like diced bell peppers or corn.
