This was one of my favorite camping recipes, and even at home, it is one of my favorites. It really is more like a glorified chili pie, but it sooooo good. Like regular tacos, you can customize this recipe to your tastes, but for my money, it is awesome as just as it is written here.

    1.25 oz package taco seasoning mix
  • 2
    15-oz cans ranch-style beans
  • 1
    9.25-oz bag of original flavor fritos corn chips

How to Make Girl Scout Tacos

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown hamburger in Dutch oven over medium heat. When hamburger is just barely pink, add onion and cook until onion is translucent. Add taco seasoning along with 1/4 cup of water and both cans of beans. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. To serve, place handful of Fritos on plate, and top with meat-bean mixture. Top with lettuce, tomato and cheese to taste. Happy Eating!
  3. NOTE: This recipe is written for home kitchen preparation. This recipe tastes best when prepared over an open fire. However, use care when cooking with open flames. I recommend using long-handled cooking utensils. Also, when using regular cooking pots over an open fire, an old Girl Scout trick is to lightly coat the OUTSIDE of the pan with a bit of regular dishwashing soap (i.e. Dawn, Palmolive, etc.) to facilitate easy washing.
