Chicken & Slaw in a Cone

In the spirit of many food trucks, this is not only “walking-around” food, but also a mashup that pays homage to multiple dishes. Chicken & waffles, tacos, wraps – it all comes together in this sweet-meets-savory meal in a cone. (Don’t laugh … it may sound strange, but it’s really good!) And yes, we make the cones too – we have a recipe for tea-infused cones in Issue 12 of our eMagazine, which we make using an Edgecraft Waffle Cone Maker. ~ Marlys
