Taco Cones

Party-ready tacos that are perfect for family taco night too!

Ingredients

1
tablespoon olive oil
1
pound lean ground beef, chicken, or turkey
1
small onion, chopped
3/4
cup water
1
packet Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
8
Old El Paso™ Soft Taco Shells
1
(14 ounce) can Old El Paso™ refried beans
2
cups cooked white or brown rice
1-1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese or Mexican cheese blend
1
cup shredded lettuce
1
cup grape tomatoes, chopped
Guacamole, for serving
Sour cream, for serving

Directions

  • 1 Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ground beef (or turkey or chicken) and chopped onion. Brown completely, breaking up the meat as you go. Once the meat is browned throughout and the onions are soft, add the water and taco seasoning. Give everything a good stir and simmer until the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat.
  • 2 Warm the tortillas in the microwave for 15-30 seconds each, or until warm to touch. Working with one tortilla at a time, spread an even layer of refried beans over the entire top of the tortilla. Down the center of the tortilla, layer the rice, cheese, meat, lettuce and tomatoes, adjusting fillings to suit tastes if desired. To form a cone, hold one end of the tortilla down and roll into a cone shape, keeping one hand on the bottom corner and spiraling the tortilla into a cone. Use a little of the refried beans to secure the edge in place.
  • 3 Top with guacamole and sour cream. Enjoy!

Step By Step  

Your taco party just got a new twist with these fun, customizable taco cones.

As prepared by Half Baked Harvest,

What an easy dinner idea – taco fixings rolled up in a tortilla cone. Clever!

I don’t know about you, but I grew up on tacos. My family would eat them for dinner at least once a week. Simple tacos have always been a staple in our house and I'm certain they always will be.

But while we all love tacos, sometimes it’s fun to try and reinvent them. You know, give em’ a little facelift. Spice up dinner without adding a whole lot of work. 

Enter taco cones. How fun would these be for a party?

 

Taco Cones

First, grab your ingredients for the filling. You can use ground beef, turkey or chicken. I went with ground beef since that's our favorite.

 

Taco Cones

Add a diced onion to the meat and place in a large sauté pan, then brown all over, breaking the meat up as you go.

Once the meat is browned, add the water.

Next up, add the Old El Paso taco seasoning. So far, you know this taco drill, right?

But this is where you can really change things up and get creative if you like. Feel free to add whatever seasonings you wish here! I like to add in chipotle peppers, enchilada sauce, fresh peppers and whatever else I may have that sounds good that day.

 

Taco Cones

Cook until the liquid has evaporated and everything smells delicious.

Ok, now it’s time to assemble. Gather up your toppings and add-ins.

 

Taco Cones

Spread the entire surface of one pre-warmed tortilla with Old El Paso refried beans.

Then, down the center of the tortilla, layer the cheese, rice and meat. If desired, towards the top section of the tortilla, add the lettuce and tomatoes.

Be careful not to stuff too much in the center. If you add too much, your taco will not form into a cone and everything will spill out.

 

Taco Cones

Now roll one side over and pinch the bottom down with your finger.

 

Taco Cones

From here, spiral the tortillas into a cone. It may take you a try or two to get it right, but you want to guide the taco into a cone shape. If needed, add a dollop of refried beans to glue the cone shut.

 

Taco Cones

Serve with guacamole, sour cream (or Greek yogurt) and fresh cilantro.

And dig in right away!
