How to make a walk-o-taco*.

1. Find a taco bar, close your eyes, and choose a bag of chips. You will get Doritos or Fritos. Crush the chips inside the bag.


2. Fold down the top of the bag.


3. Add taco fixings. Grab a fork.


4. Walk with your taco.


*Amber, featured model and taco instructor, says they are called walking tacos, but I prefer walk-o-taco.

    Walking tacos were the most anticipated & loved lunch at my grade school. Fuck salisbury steak!

    That sounds amazing. I thought I had already experienced tacos in all of their possible incarnations. Now I have something to look forward to again. Best birthday present ever.

    That does sound amazing, WB we need to try this in philly.

    I’m so glad you remembered to put in the “closing of the eyes” part; many people forget that step.

    Oh– and passing on this treasured knowledge felt really good. I think I’ll chase this feeling and spread walking taco making worldwide.

    I can appreciate the innovation, but i still don’t understand why you can’t just walk with a regular taco? I know that regular taco walking can result in messy droppings, but walking taco walking requires some fork to mouth coordination, which not all of us can master while walking. It’s a toss-up. I’m waiting for liquid taco through a straw, i guess.

    also, great instructional photo essay! wouldn’t even need words (except for the first photo, which might be misinterpreted as “blind girl choose chips by sound.”

  2. Super Useful Amber Tips « NerdGirlBlogging - 07/31/08

    […] yes I know it sounds gross, but it works! Just pluck out a piece of hair and carefully floss–carefully because hair breaks easier than floss so sometimes you have to use more than one piece. And if you are like “ew that is dead skin, I don’t want that in my teeth” um, I ask do you ever use your fingernails to get stuff out of your teeth? I hope you said yes to that question because otherwise I will feel like a really disgusting person. I used this tip alot back in high school cheerleading before varsity games when I would sit and eat popcorn while stretching. Yum, I love concession stand food. OOOh, if you are ever at the Burlington Stadium–fyi they make the BEST walking tacos. You all know how much I love my walking tacos. […]
