Scraps and Snippets ~ Walking Taco

Back in the day when the kids belonged to 4H we used to go to the local county fair. It was so much fun. And one of the big treats was discovering a thing called walking tacos. They were little sideways slit bags of Fritos with chili and cheese and other assorted goodies on top. I don't know if it was the fun factor or novelty, but every year we looked forward to those walking tacos. 
Now we can have them whenever we want. Veganized and as delicious as we remember. 
6 small bags of Fritos.  Cut the the bag horizontally. 
3 crumbled veggie burgers or veggie meat crumbles. ( I used these)
2 small tomatoes diced
1 small onion small dice
1 tsp fresh chopped cilantro
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp cumin

Toss the meat, onion, tomato in a hot pan and stir until onion begins to brown. Add the spices and water. Simmer until the water is absorbed. 

Scoop the mixture onto the Fritos in the bag. Top with some of the following: vegan sour cream, vegan cheese, chopped tomatoes, slices of avocado or guacamole, chopped black olives, black or pinto beans, lettuce, salsa... eat with a fork and enjoy.
