Taco Waffle Cones


Let’s taco bout a new trend that’s been popping up across the U.S. — savory dishes in waffle cones! I like this new trend a waffle lot for several reasons. First off, I’m a big fan of savory waffles. I mean really it’s just like a biscuit or bagel or any other bread-like product. Secondly, it’s easily portable. I’ve seen Instagram posts from people across the country stuffing their savory waffle cones with everything from fried chicken and macaroni and cheese to salads to falafels.

If you couldn’t tell by my puns in the first paragraph, this week I’m trying out the trend with tacos! This idea was original to me the. I first started prepping for my segment. However, I have since discovered that the “tacone” was being talked about as early as 2012 by Dude Foods.

I’m not entirely sure why it hasn’t completely taken off. It seems to me like they would be more popular by now. But I posted it on Twitter last night and a lot of people were really turned off by the idea. What is there to get upset about, people?! You’re just replacing the taco shell with a waffle cone. Oh well. As T-Swift, the great lyricist of our generation, would say “The haters are gonna hate hate hate.”

For this recipe, I attempted to make my own waffle cones without a waffle cone maker. The key word in that is attempted because I was unsuccessful. Twice. So you know what I decided to do instead? I bought some waffle cones and seasoned them with spices to make them savory. Waffle cones already aren’t too sweet, so that method worked out well!

Also, I have a few tips for making to most out of each bit of your tacone. 1) Before you stick the waffle cone in the oven to bake on the seasoning, throw some shredded cheese in the cone. It will melt on one side, and you get a nice even distribution of cheese. 2) If you’re going to use sour cream or guacamole, spread it inside of the cone, covering the circumference. Once again, it makes for a more even distribution.
