  • 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese shredded
  • 1 pound ground beef lean 93/7
  • 1/2 package taco seasoning
  • 12 bags Fritos Corn Chips



  • Cook ground beef in a skillet over medium heat, breaking it up with a masher or base of a wooden spoon and stir in taco seasoning until just brown.
  • Optional: combine ranch mix and sour cream.
  • Fill chip bags for walking tacos with ground beef, shredded cheese, fiesta sour cream and so much more.


  • Fresh shredded monterey jack or colby jack cheese. It takes just 2 minutes and is totally worth it. The best cheese is usually reserved for blocks, plus it has less preservatives and remains in tact, making it much creamier than pre-shredded cheese.
Serve with:
  • Sliced Olives
  • Diced Onions
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole or Sliced Avocados
  • Beans 
  • Pico De Gallo
  • Sour Cream
  • Shredded Lettuce
