This is not a normal taco, but we like it and have used it for years. When my children were little they used to love to "build" their own plate by layering the ingedients as shown in the directions here. Be careful though - its real easy to end up with way more on your plate than you can eat - especially if you're hungry! I'm guessing on the size of the Frito bag, but it doesn't really matter as long as you have enough for your meal. It's fresh, it's crunchy, it's easier to eat than regular tacos, and its a real favorite in our family. Try adding any other taco-type ingredients according to what you like. Enjoy!

Great simple fast way to make taco nachos! I loved how you left the ingredients semi optional. That makes it easier to fit a family's tastes. Thanks so much! I will be making this again! Made for PAC Orphanage Spring 08
