Totally Tacos

Tacos rival burgers for sheer fun packaging. First there's the wrap. Corn and flour tortillas are very different characters: A fresh corn tortilla is full of heady masa aroma and a pleasantly springy texture, while the best flour tortillas are soft but chewy. Then come the fillings. Almost anything goes, including eggs, Mexican sausage, spicy shrimp, beer-braised chicken, crunchy pan-fried tofu, and even ice cream. It's all fun and healthy, and it's all right here.

First up is the star of the show–our Chocolate Tacos with Ice Cream and Peanuts. Spread batter as evenly as possible on baking sheet. When shaping the shells, balance the wooden spoons between objects that are about 6 inches apart. Allow plenty of room so you can work quickly.
