Cinnamon Roll Tacos have a cinnamon roll taco shell. Topped with berries and whipped cream, you won't believe how good these can be!
I have never been much of a taco lover. I’m fairly certain that has to do with the fact that I ate Taco Bell for dinner at least 4 nights a week when I was in college. Not by choice, more by proximity, because my dorm was way too close to this popular taco chain.
Proximity aside, they also happened to accept my meal plan card, which my 18 year-old, burrito loving self found to be quite amazing. However, this pretty much equaled a vicious cycle of late night Nachos Bell Grandes chased down with more Tums than I care to remember. And let’s not even get started on the Freshman 15 – which was more like the Freshman 20.
Fast-forward about 17 years and now I’m with a guy who loves tacos. When I say he’d eat them every single day, I’m so not kidding. From shredded chicken tacos to taco salads, tacos are his jam and I’ve come to accept this. I just wish I could get him to like my favorite chipotle-lime shrimp tacos – but nope, he’s so not a shrimp guy.
When the lovely folks at Food Fanatic proposed the idea of #TacoWeek, I had to get in on the action. And this girl certainly wasn’t going to be making a taco salad. I had dessert tacos on the brain, but I was also toying with the idea of a dessert taco that could double as breakfast. Enter cinnamon roll tacos.
Cinnamon rolls take on a new life when they’re rolled flat, lightly fried and stuffed with freshly whipped cream and berries to create one epically delicious dessert or sweet breakfast taco. If you’re feeling a little over-the-top, sub out the fresh lime zest for a drizzle of salted caramel sauce. You can thank me later.
Cinnamon roll tacos are easy to whip together with a little help from the supermarket, but trust me, no one will even notice you took a shortcut. They’ll be way too busy singing your praises for turning a cinnamon roll into the most delicious taco ever.
