Walking Taco Bake


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2 cups chili cheese Fritos
  • 1/2 can (about 5 oz) cheddar cheese soup
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef until no longer pink. Drain any excess fat.

  4. Spread a layer of chili cheese Fritos on the bottom of an 8 x 8 baking dish.
  5. Spread the seasoned meat evenly over the layer of Fritos.
  6. In a saucepan, combine the cheddar cheese soup and milk. Heat over low heat until warm, stirring occasionally.
  7. Once warmed, pour the cheese mixture evenly over the meat layer in the baking dish.
  8. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the cheese sauce layer.
  9. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Remove the baking dish from the oven and let it cool slightly.
  11. Scoop out the desired amount onto plates and serve hot.

Here are some tips to make your Walking Taco Bake even more delicious:

  1. Customize the Seasoning: Experiment with different taco seasoning blends or add extra spices like cumin, chili powder, or garlic powder to suit your taste preferences.
  2. Mix and Match Chips: While the recipe calls for chili cheese Fritos, feel free to use your favorite variety of corn chips or even tortilla chips for added crunch and flavor.
  3. Add Fresh Toppings: Serve your Walking Taco Bake with a variety of fresh toppings such as diced tomatoes, sliced jalapeños, chopped cilantro, or diced avocado for a burst of freshness and color.
  4. Enhance the Cheese Sauce: Amp up the flavor of the cheese sauce by stirring in some diced green chilies, chopped green onions, or a dash of hot sauce for an extra kick.
  5. Make it Ahead: You can prepare the meat mixture and cheese sauce ahead of time and assemble the dish just before baking. This is perfect for busy weeknights or when entertaining guests.
  6. Double the Recipe: If you’re feeding a crowd or want leftovers, double the recipe and bake it in a larger dish. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator and reheated for a quick and satisfying meal later on.
  7. Serve with Sides: Round out your meal by serving the Walking Taco Bake with side dishes like Spanish rice, refried beans, or a crisp green salad for a complete and satisfying meal.
  8. Get Creative: Feel free to get creative with additional toppings or mix-ins such as black beans, corn, or diced bell peppers to add extra flavor and texture to your Walking Taco Bake.
