Tacos-in-a-bag is a simple and fun meal. It could make an ideal meal for the first night on camp as it doesn’t need much preparation.
There’s not a lot to it, and you can prepare at home before hand.
Tacos in a Bag Ingredients
- Some bags of tortilla chips (most people will want two bags).
- Taco sauce. You can make this up at home and bring with you.
- Grated cheese.
- Shredded lettuce.
- Sauces as required, e.g. Salsa, Sour Cream, etc.
- You can also add chopped tomatoes and sliced peppers.
We made this really easy for us by making the taco sauce at home first, we bought a bag of pre-washed lettuce, and bought some Mexican tortilla ‘dips’ which we could add as sauce.
Making Tacos in a Bag
We used our Trangia to heat our taco sauce for a few minutes.
We found that using a knife to split open the bag lengthways was the easiest way to eat them.
Parent warning: make sure they actually have the bag closed before they shake it, and avoid them shaking it too vigorously!
Simply eat out of the bag with a fork. (The kids are enjoying their tacos in the den we built. See building a den)
“They’re brilliant!”, said our youngest.
Some of the crunched mixture may not look that appetising, but they taste really good.
Here’s a video the kids made…
