Fiesta Tuesday + Waffle Tacos

For the past two(ish) years, my friends and I have frequented Qdoba for their $1(ish) Taco Tuesdays and $5 Burrito Fridays. These special deal days were usually a good opportunity to stuff ourselves with Mexican food as well as socialize and have a good time after X hours of class.

This particular Tuesday, however, there was a heavy downpour that greatly decreased our will to venture outside and make the journey to Qdoba. SO, we pooled our resources and created our own homemade Taco Tuesday at my apartment! Also, we just thought waffle tacos sounded awesome!

And as you know, any food in my apartment will always try its luck with my waffle iron 😉

First, we did our best to make some soft taco tortillas. Unfortunately, my rolling pin decided to go missing, so the little circles were difficult to get as thin and round as desired. However, still delicious, and ended up working out pretty well for waffling.

Next, my friend Lindsey brought out some of her taco meat, which was cooked on the stovetop with some classy taco mix packet seasoning! She also whipped up some fresh guacamole, which paired perfectly with the guacamole and salsa flavored tortilla chips I had sitting in my cupboard! Nom!

Salsa and guac + salsa chips and guac chips = WIN

When the taco meat was done cooking, we put little spoonfuls into the soft taco shells along with some chopped up lettuce and cheese, then folded the shells over to cover all of the taco goodness. The waffle iron top then went down and created some of the cutest little waffle tacos the world has ever known! Spread some guac and salsa on top, and we were ready to paaaarty!
