Waffle Tacos (Vegetarian-Style)

Waffle Tacos are the best of both taco worlds! The crisp edges give it the crunch of a hard shell taco, but the soft inside gives it the chewiness of a soft taco. Everyone gets fed, and everyone is happy!

  • 10 frozen waffles
  • 2 oz cotija cheese crumbled
  • 2 ripe avocados smashed
  • 1/2 red onion minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 limes
  • 1 ear of corn shucked
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 can black beans well rinsed


  • Heat a pan over your stove on medium heat. Spray with nonstick spray and ad shucked corn. You might want to turn on your vent fan as there will be some smoke. Cook for 8 minutes, rotating 2 or 3 times to grill evenly.
  • Meanwhile, add the smashed avocados, the minced garlic, 1/3 of the cilantro and 1/3 of the onion in a small bowl. Squeeze the juice of 1 lime over the top and blend with a fork until creamy. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge. (Note: The wrap should make contact with the guac to keep it green)
  • Remove the corn kernels and place in a Tupperware, along with the black beans, juice of 1 lime, and the remaining onion & cilantro. Cover and store in the fridge.
  • When you're ready to serve, toast the waffles until hot and crisp. Layer on 1 scoop of guacamole, plenty of bean salad, and sprinkle with cheese.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
