I also found this when you google the origins of the walking taco. So looks like everyone is correct. The “walking frito pie” began in Knoxville, Tennessee, at the 1982 World's Fair. ... Frito pie (also known as “Frito Chili Pie,” “Frito Boat”, “Chili Frito Casserole” or, in the Midwest, a “Walking Taco") is a corn chip and chili con carne dish of disputed origin, popular in the South Western United States.
Correction. These are not frito pie.walking tacos come with hamburger meat and frito pie is with chili. From a southern girl
Who cares what you call it in your neck of the woods!!! Still tastes the same! Delicious ??
These are always great! I have to laugh at the debate of the name. I have never heard of it being called Frito pie. Must be a north/ south thing. Definitely called walking taco around my neck of the woods in MN.
here in So Cal, these were called pepper bellies and were sold at little league park concession stands during baseball season.
Lots of people tellign to to change the name. "Walking Taco" is what I grew up calling them in the Midwest. I am accustomed to, and prefer, making them with a bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos. Hince, calling it a Frito Pie wouldn't make sense for that application. A bag of Doritos full of taco filling... "Walking Taco" is a great name for it. I also recommend cuting the bag open from the side, like a boat. This will make it easier to eat.
Looks good, but messy to eat out of a bag! I'll use a bowl or plate, thx.

North vs. South: NORTH: WALKING TACOS! SOUTH: FRITO-PIE! NO ONE: LETS EAT THIS WITH OUR FINGERS.
This is actually called a "Frito Pie". It was invented at the Five and Dime Store, right off the main Plaza in Old Santa Fe, in Santa Fe, New Mexico by Teresa Hernandez in the 1960s when it was a Woolworth's Drug Store. Teresa ladled her mother's homemade Texas style chili into an opened Frito's bag and topped it with cheddar cheese.
