These crock pot walking tacos are an easy weeknight dinner for the family or a crowd! Serve them for Cinco de Mayo or Taco Tuesday!
One of my son’s favorite lunches to get at school is Walking Tacos. If you haven’t heard of them, it’s basically all of the taco fixings served on top of Frito’s or Doritos. We do Taco Tuesday every week in our house and I decided to do the walking tacos but in a crock pot for our family of 4. Scroll down for my recipe and be sure to pin for future!
Easy Crock Pot Walking Tacos
- 1 bag Frito’s corn chips (you can also use Doritos)
- 1 package of ground turkey or beef
- 1 red bell pepper diced
- 1 green pepper diced
- 1 yellow pepper diced
- 1 yellow onion diced
- 2 tbsp of garlic minced
- 1 can of Rotel tomatoes and diced chilies
- 1 packet of taco seasoning
- shredded lettuce
- sour cream
- shredded cheese
- guacamole (optional)
1.) Start by spraying the bottom of the slow cooker with nonstick spray or olive oil.
2.) Pour the fritos on the bottom of the crockpot.
3.) Add the meat, onions, peppers, garlic, Rotel, and taco seasoning.
4.) Stir well and cook on low for 1-2 hours.
5.) When ready to serve scoop in a bowl and top with shredded lettuce, sour cream, cheese and guac.
6.) If you wish, top with more fritos for some extra crunch.
Note – putting the fritos in the crock pot will cause them to get a little soft. If you don’t like the texture, add all ingredients except the fritos into the crock pot. Then when getting ready to serve, layer your bowl with a layer of chips first, then add the taco fixings from the crock pot!
Serve with my spicy pineapple ranch water or one of these margaritas 🙂

Walking tacos are a favorite meal at my house, but I’ve never cooked the meat in the crock pot! I’m going to try this next time! Thanks for the great idea!
