“Not really a 'recipe', just a way to serve them when you have a lots of kids over, and most important NO MESS to clean up. My DS's and their cousins really had fun with this, and they could layer whatever they wanted. I'm giving just an estimated quantity and serving is for 1 person. To free up your time buy presliced vegetables from the local salad bar in your supermarket, just place them individually in the plastic produce bag and place in salad bar container to keep ingredients apart.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat leftover taco meat in microwave.
  2. Have the kids help you carry the rest of the ingredients outside to the picnic table (you carry the meat).
  3. Hand each child a plastic sandwich bag and pour the corn chips in the bag.
  4. Have each child gently crush the chips, not roughly or else they'll poke holes in the bags.
  5. Have each child walk around the table to layer their own ingredients in the bag, pass each child a fork and dig in!.
  6. Simply toss out the bag when they are done.
