Taco “Ice Cream” Cones

Taco “Ice Cream” Cones

With all this posting of ice cream here and here, how about making dinner look like dessert with Taco “Ice Cream” Cones? Because sometimes you need a savory treat in the form of a sweet one. Besides, what kid wouldn’t want a taco that looks like ice cream? Well, really I am sure they would want ice cream for dinner but it’s the second best option really.

The potatoes really make for a dead ringer for ice cream so don’t leave them out! If you have never tried this combo (mashed potatoes in your Mexican food), you are going to love it. The first time I tried it was in taquito form and it was spectacular–whoever created it needs to be covered in hot fudge.  Or guacamole. Or both. You of course can add more to these tacos, like coat the bottom layer with Quinoa Taco “Meat”, Vegan Queso, Shredded Hearts of Palm, or even simply some refried beans. Do what you want kiddo, this is your dinner treat.
