If you’re a fan of street food and enjoy the convenience of snacking, you will love walking tacos! Allegedly born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the original walking tacos were made with Fritos corn chips. Today, TikTok has created its version, which most commonly consists of an individual-sized bag of Doritos filled with all of your favorite taco toppings. Since many traditional taco ingredients are not vegan, the plant-based TikTok community has veganized this recipe, and it looks just as delicious and fun to eat!

We also highly recommend downloading the Food Monster App  — with over 15,000 delicious recipes, it is the largest meatless, vegan, plant-based, and allergy-friendly recipe resource to help you get healthy!

Are you dying to try the walking tacos trend but are not a fan of Fritos? TikTok user @oatmlkem uses Takis as a replacement. If you love spicy foods, the Takis will add the perfect amount of crunch and heat. Instead of throwing all the ingredients in a bag, you can also heat it in the microwave, like this user did, to ensure the vegan cheese is nice and melted!
