What makes a taco dinner even better? MORE TACOS! Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and we have the ultimate dessert taco recipe to share with you…Fruit Tacos! They are perfect to enjoy after your favorite savory taco, because really….there is NO SUCH THING AS TOO MANY TACOS!

The trick to making delicious fruit tacos is to sweeten your taco shell. You could use crepes or even slices of sponge cake as your shell, but we decided to go with sweetened flour tortillas. This is a really easy process. Simply melt some butter with a bit of cinnamon and sugar. Then apply this mixture to the inside of a warm tortilla.

Just like regular tacos, fruit tacos can be filled with a variety of items. There are no certain fruits that you must use or shouldn’t use. Get creative and choose whatever combination of fruit you like best. We went with kiwi, strawberries, blueberries, and mango.

Instructions
  1. Cut up your choice of fruit. While this recipe calls for strawberries, mango, kiwi, and blueberries, you can substitute whatever fruit you'd like.
  2. Put half of the strawberries in a blender or food processor and purée with a dash of cinnamon and sugar to make "strawberry salsa". You may need to add a tablespoon of water to help blend.

  6. Add fruit and drizzle with "strawberry salsa."
