In Texas a big hit is walking tacos,( I loved these my fave restaurant in Texas that serves them, D & T Drive Inn in Houston,) if you aren't familiar, it's basically chili inside a bag of Fritos! It's referred to also as frito pie. I made a skinnier version using lean ground turkey. Perfect for upcoming football parties, easy clean up and your guests will love it! And now that back to school is in session it's perfect for kids dinners! ♥
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped sweet onion
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (15.5-ounce) can chili beans (or any beans), drained
8 to 10 small bags of Fritos, tops of the bags cut off
desired taco fixings (lettuce, tomato, light sour cream, avocado, light shredded cheese, etc)
1. Heat a large saute pan to medium-high, swirl a Tablespoon of olive oil. Saute onions and mix in ground turkey. Cook until lightly browned. Tilt the pan and scoop out any accumulated fat (or take a bunch of paper towels and let them soak it up. Discard the fat.
2. Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle mixed spices onto the cooked meat. Pour in chili beans. Heat for about 10 more minutes & your taco filling is ready.
3. Set up a "fixings" table with a bowl of the taco meat and desired taco fillings, and let each person fill their Fritos bag with whatever fixings they like. (lettuce, tomato, light sour cream, avocado, light shredded cheese) enjoy! ♥
