We all love tacos, but there is a special place in our hearts for traveling tacos. They remind of us our childhood or, if you’re like me and went to the University of Iowa, it reminds you of leaving the bars and grabbing a traveling taco on your way home (or to afties). Yes, a traveling taco stand on a college campus that was only open after the bars closed. Epic business idea, right? This is way more simple than you probably think it is. It takes almost no time and you can add or discard whatever flavors you’d like. I used Takis Habanero Lime chips instead of the classic Doritos because I like the added heat and citrus flavors, but use whatever you’d like. I hope you seriously enjoy this meal and it brings a smile to your face, like it did mine!
