Walking Toastada? I admit I never heard the term “walking” anything until my son joined the marching band and I started volunteering at the concession stand during games. The other band parents taught me to take a small bag of fritos, crush it with my hand, open it, glop some sort of hot dog chili out of a foil baggie that remains heated 24/7, top that with a glop of “cheese”, stick a fork in it, and had it to the poor fool who’d just paid $2 for that ahem goodness.

Your walking tostada, Dorothy, looks and sounds so. much. better.
