Innovation Squared


"Walking Taco: When the weather gets hot, sometimes you just need an extra-easy, extra-portable meal. So, if my childhood trips to summer camp taught me one thing about mobile food, it’s this: there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a walking taco on a lazy day. You just throw your favorite taco ingredients into a single-serve bag of corn chips (the smallest size, or you’ll be overwhelmed by chips), grab a fork, and go! It doesn’t get much simpler than that." --Love Truth & Beauty

Your Say

In my wildest dreams, I own a baseball team. Not major league, but a farm club. Everyday I go to the ballpark, and watch the team practice or play, and I eat a walking taco or a Frito pie, and have a beer. It's a great dream, and my husband promises if he ever gets rich, he'll buy me a team.

A dish similar to this (substitute chili con carne for taco meat) has been enjoyed here in Texas since at least the 1930s. It is locally called "frito pie". It's what you get from the concession stand on Friday night at the high school varsity football game. The combination of cold fall night and piping hot frito pie is a fond memory of youth shared by many Texans.

Interesting idea. Ingenious, even. I've never heard of that before.
