Mexico really doesn't care if you have your passport on you as long as you're in the border zone and are staying for less than 72 hours. There's no tourist card or passport stamp required in Mexico's...

I've done this crossing more times than I can count, though the last time was in 2006. Crossing by foot is definitely faster and more convenient, especially if you'll only be there a few hours....
