Walking Tacos, Tortoise's Favorite Camp Meal

Megan Stewart


Tortoise is my camp name, and everybody knows I love to cook in camp. It has come to the point that all of the PA girls and leaders ask what I am cooking before they plan their week of meals!

This is one of my favorite meals in camp, and I just love the addition of guacamole, especially since Shorty shared her recipe with me!

Panama Jack also brings a jar of salsa into camp with this meal...there are so many ways to make this recipe your own, and either way, I LOVE IT!

about 25




3 lb
hamburger, fried and drained well
3 pkg
taco seasoning mix
15 oz
tomato sauce
shredded lettuce
shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream
guacamole (try shorty's guacacmole recipe)
onion, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

Have each girl bring 1-2 bags of Fritos, the small lunch box size ones.
Before camp, fry the hamburger, drain and mix with seasoning and tomato sauce. Freeze in gallon ziplock. The tomato sauce will help keep the meat from burning when you heat it up in camp, and by lunchtime it will be thawed enough to heat. Each girl should open her Fritos and crumble the chips a little bit. Top chips with a spoonful of taco meat and let them get a spoonful of sour cream, guacamole or salsa on top. Then sprinkle with cheese and lettuce. I ask parents to bring extras (double up on them because sometimes parents forget!), I bring the meat and a big bag of Fritos along in case anybody forgets.
This was doubled for our Cadette Cookout. I have used 4 pounds of meat in camp and never had leftovers. Thanks to Panama Jack for having the guacamole and salsa in daycamp. Laker loved it so much it is now a permanent part of the recipe!
