Food trucks have taken over America.  They can be found in almost every major city and even food network did a show about them.  A few weeks ago I was in Austin with Shaun and his sister and we decided to eat some lunch on South Congress street.  Well if you know Austin you are aware that there is a block dedicated solely for food trucks.  There is a well known truck stand called Mighty Cone that is one of the more popular joints.  This dish is dedicated to their Hot and Spicy Chicken Cone that they make so well.  ENJOY!!
