Walking Ta-Cones – Hiland Dairy

Walking Ta-Cones

The Perfect Taco for a Family on the Go

My family has a taco bar dinner on a weekly basis. My kids love tacos and I love preparing them because they’re easy to make. And, now that after-school activities have started, I’ve come up with a way for my kids to take their tacos with them on their way to a practice without the mess. Super simple. Super yummy. It’s a super dinner on the go.

Walking Ta-Cones Recipe


Walking Ta-Cones Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 block Hiland Dairy Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped black olives
  • 1 (8-ounce) container Hiland Dairy Sour Cream
  • Taco sauce, optional
  • 1 package flour tortilla shells


Prepare ground beef and taco seasoning according to package directions.

Walking Ta-Cones Step 1

Place a flour tortilla on a microwave-safe plate and sprinkle with cheese. Be sure to sprinkle more cheese around the edges than in the middle of the tortilla.

Walking Ta-Cones Step 2

Microwave the tortilla 25-30 seconds until the cheese is just melted.

Walking Ta-Cones Step 3

Remove from microwave and place crumpled parchment paper down the center the tortilla. Be sure to make the parchment balls ascend in size.

  • Tip: It’s important to use only microwave-safe parchment paper. Aluminum foil could cause a fire in the microwave, and paper towels or wax paper will stick to the cone’s cheesy interior.

Walking Ta-Cones Step 4

Immediately roll the tortilla over balled parchment paper to form a cone. Press the bottom of the tortilla tip upward to close the cone.

Walking Ta-Cones Step 5

Set cone aside and let cool for about 5 minutes.

Remove parchment paper from inside the cone.

Walking Ta-Cones Step 6

Fill the cone halfway with meat and additional toppings. Repeat layering once more until the walking ta-cone is full.

Diva’s Tip

If you have sporty kids, it’s a great idea to have Hiland Dairy Chocolate Milk for a recovery drink. It’s loaded with high-quality protein and nutrients the body needs after a tough practice.
