These unique tacos are the perfect way to make taco night quick and portable! They can even be prepped ahead! Such a creative, fun twist on traditional tacos – and they’re great for taco bar parties and tailgates, too!
Another terrific thing about them is how nutritious they are – lots of healthy upgrades!
For one thing, we swapped out a more traditional tortilla for a Flatout, which is loaded with protein and fiber-rich whole grains.
Then, there’s the taco meat itself. We recommend using the very leanest ground beef you can find, or if you prefer, you can use very lean ground turkey.
Plus, the taco meat has lots of nutritious vegetables mixed in: garlic and plenty of onions, black beans, corn, and a jar of lycopene-rich salsa.
And that’s before you even begin layering in the toppings. Be sure to include plenty of fresh veggies to finish these off – maybe diced tomatoes and thinly sliced romaine lettuce, for starters.
Notice that this recipe is intended to be adjustable. Precisely how many cones you’ll want to make and how far you can stretch the taco meat will depend on a variety of factors, including how tightly you wrap the cones, how many toppings you include along with the taco meat, and how high you pile on the toppings (hint: for mess-free portability, don’t pile them too high).
No matter how you make them, these are sure to be a hit! Taco night, reinvented … portable, more fun, and healthier than ever!
