the ultimate taco buffet
Creating the perfect taco buffet just got easier! Line up all your ingredients and away you go. Simple, yummy, and oh so filling.
Bases: Tacos need a good vehicle to get all those toppings to your mouth. Tortillas, hard taco shells, lettuce wraps, baked taco bowls, or even tortilla chips are all good options.
Protein: Go more traditional with chicken, ground beef or turkey, carnitas, carne asada, black beans, or refried beans. Or, switch it up with fish, shrimp, tofu, or lentils.
Veggies (and fruit!): Let’s load these up! Everything from traditional toppings like tomato, lettuce, and onions to new ones like sliced radishes or pineapple are a hit.
Toppings: Bring on all the extra toppings! Guacamole, salsa, queso are all musts, along with cheese, jalapenos, fresh cilantro, and more.
- Use a large cutting board or baking sheet so you have lots of space.
- For small items or ones that need the help of a spoon, like refried beans, sour cream, or shredded cheese, use small bowls to keep any mess contained.
- Start by placing larger items on the board, like your bowls or tortillas. Then build in all the extra space with all. the. toppings!
- For extra flair, sprinkle fresh cilantro or other herbs/seasonings throughout the board.
