Taco in a Bag

Taco in a Bag
It's tasty, neat, fun, and kiddos (& grown-ups too) LOVE THIS!!! dearest, sheltered husband had NEVER had taco in a bag, thus the reason we whipped this up.  Yes-he was an avid fan!


  • Single Serve Chip Bags (we used Baked Doritos for lower fat/calories)
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped bell pepper (any color/variety/mix)
  • 1 can Rotel tomato sauce
  • Use the Rotel can and fill 1/2 can with water
  • 3 tbsp salsa (I used Wholly Salsa-medium)
  • Seasonings-to taste
    • cumin (1 tsp)
    • salt (1/2 tsp)
    • pepper (1/2 tsp)
    • cilantro (1/2 tsp)
  • Condiments
    • fat free shredded cheddar
    • fat free sour cream
    • hot sauce
    • salsa
    • shredded lettuce

  1. In medium/large sauce pot, combine beef and peppers
  2. Stirring frequently cook meat/peppers over medium heat until it is about halfway browned
  3. Add in Rotel tomato sauce, seasonings, and salsa
  4. Cook over low heat until meat is thoroughly done and the sauces/juices have cooked down and into the meat.
  5. Take a bag of chips per person, crush the chips, open the bag and add in about 1/2 cup meat mixture
  6. Add condiments on top 
  7. Enjoy your taco in a bag----some people like to stir it up in the bag-others like to just dig in through the layers and enjoy!
