Do People Really Eat Dessert Tacos?

Taco Tuesday will never be the same once you start surprising everyone with these after the main course. Thing Chaco Taco’s but made at home and full of whipped cream and chocolate strawberries…yum!

Strawberry cheesecake tacos are really easy to make. They’re fun and the end result is so sweet and indulgent that everyone will be back for seconds!

It’s a great treat to serve up when you are making tacos but it’s also great for parties and family gatherings when you just want to make something that you know no one else is bringing to the event.

Are these gluten free strawberry dessert tacos?

Technically as written they are not gluten free but you’ll see a note below and I’ll mention it here, you can easily swap out the whole wheat tortillas for corn tortillas which are already smaller and you can use them for a GF version of this recipe.

If you have access to the smaller 4 inch corn or flour tortillas used for street tacos this recipe is easier with those in either case because they don’t need to be cut down to size!

Use corn tortillas to make this recipe gluten free and then you will be all set. Everything else will be naturally gluten free which is great.

How many dessert tacos does this recipe make?

You can make about 8 dessert tacos with this recipe as written. I wouldn’t make more than you can eat or share in a single day because they won’t store well and should be eaten as soon as possible. Think about how real tacos from Taco Bell tacos are after a few hours in a bag…the shells just can’t take that kind of moisture and still be delicious for very long.

Make these as close to time to serve them as you can so that they remain crunchy on the outside for peak strawberry dessert taco deliciousness.

Kitchen essentials for dessert recipes:

When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are great for all kinds of baking and not just cookies! My husband loves them for making biscuits, pizzas, and more!

Of course mixing bowls, a mixerspatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

How to make strawberry cheesecake tacos at home:

Start by cutting the wheat tortillas with a mold of 4 inches in diameter. You can also use mini tortillas if you find them more convenient or replace them with corn tortillas if you prefer to make this gluten-free.

Mix the sugar and the butter in a bowl and heat it in the microwave for 1 minute until the butter melts. Spread the mixture of butter and sugar over the tortillas on both sides with a pastry brush.

Now you have several options to shape the tortillas into taco shells. My favorite is to take a donut mold or cupcake mold, turn it around, place the tortillas in the gaps between the donuts, and heat it in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes over 350 F (180º C). Another option is to place them inside a tupperware with the desired form.

Meanwhile, your tacos are in the oven. You can start whipping the cream or, if you prefer it,  you can use store-bought whipped cream saving some effort and time.

Tip: you can add and mix 1 tbsp of sugar and 1 tbsp of grated chocolate to make the whipped cream sweeter and tastier.

A friend of mine said she takes her Taco shells, any kind, and hangs them over two wires of her oven shelves and bakes them like that. Makes perfect taco shells.
