Introduction: Ta-Cones (Taco Cones)
Move over taco-bowls, Ta-Cones are coming through! These jumbo taco cones are easy to make and so much fun! They will definitely add excitement to your next Taco Tuesday!
- 8-in flour tortillas
- aluminum foil
- 1lb ground beef
- 1 package taco seasoning
- shredded cheese
- sour cream
- other toppings as desired
Step 1: Form the Cones
Gently fold one side of a tortilla half way across. Take the other side of the tortilla and wrap it over the first flap to form a cone shape. You want to get the tip as tight as possible. If there is a small hole in the bottom, Don't worry! It will still be ok.
Take a toothpick and gently push it through the overlapping edges to hold the cone together. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Step 2: Bake the Cones
Take small sheets of aluminum foil and loosely crumble them into balls. You will need one ball for each cone. Gently insert the ball into the opening in the cone to help it hold it's shape during the baking process.
Lay the cones fold side up on a sheet pan and bake for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F. Flip the cones over and bake an additional 3 minutes.
Step 3: Prep the Toppings
Prepare what ever toppings you plan to put in your cone. I prepped lettuce, tomatoes, and of course: taco meat.
Shred some lettuce and dice up some tomatoes.
Brown your meat and drain off the fat. Add your packet of taco seasoning and finish with the instructions on the pouch.
Step 4: Finish the Cones
Once the cones have cooled, carefully remove the toothpicks and aluminum balls.
Start stuffing your cone with fillings. I started with a base layer of lettuce to catch anything that might want to fall through the small hole at the tip. Then I added beef, sour cream, tomatoes and cheese. Finish the cone with another layer of all the ingredients.
You can use whatever toppings you would like! Here are some other tasty topping suggestions:
- black olives
- pico de gallo
- refried beans
- lime juice
- hot sauce
Step 5: Enjoy the Taco Cone
Serve with an optional fork and enjoy! At first this taco cone is too cute to eat, but after about 30 seconds, you will dive right in! I had my daughter hold the cone and she tried biting it before I was able to snap the first picture. I honestly can't blame her either!
