Whether you are hosting family dinner on Sundays or a game night with friends on a Friday, offering up a Taco Bar dinner is a fun way to serve dinner that gets you out of the kitchen and out hanging out with people.
Must Have’s for a Great Taco Bar:
Sturdy Corn or Flour Tortillas (so that they don’t break & spill)
1 Dish of Mexican Casserole (easy to make ahead of time)
Plenty of Crunchy Cabbage & Cilantro (top with guac & a side of chips & you have a great vegetarian option)
Chips (for any tidbits that sneak out of the tacos)
Start with a sturdy tortilla, add a big scoop of Mexican Casserole, top with crunchy cabbage & cilantro, then add a healthy dollop of guacamole. And there you go! You have a yummy, delicious taco! The crunchy cabbage & cilantro makes a great salad option for those watching their carbs. (Or at least saving carbs for margaritas!)
Make sure you remember the chips & guac! If you want to make it from scratch, check out my recipe for homemade California guacamole!
Assemble your spread for your guests to make their own tacos. There should be plenty of filling, crunchy greens, and guac. Friends will have fun stuffing their own tacos. That way they can put just the right amount of everything they want!
As you saw on Monday, Ben & I recently took a sushi making class! It was so much fun to make our own rolls. I’m inspired to make them at home all of the time. If you missed out, check out the post on how to make Seaweed Salad & proper Sushi Rice! Today I’m […]
For one of our recent celebrations, I got Ben the gift of a sushi making class in San Francisco. We took the lesson with Chef Kaz who was so much fun & really taught us a variety of sushi skills. We started off by making an interesting Cucumber Seaweed Salad. Look at how pretty our Cucumber […]
I have this great combo of garlic shrimp with a slight kick from the peppers that I made all of the time. One night I was serving it for dinner & thought, these go so great on some nachos! I was right, it was delicious! Especially on these blue quinoa & maca chips that have […]
Lightened spaghetti & meatballs is a fun spin on a classic dish with a fraction of the carbs and sugars. Spaghetti squash is a great fall vegetable that but you should be able to find in your grocery store about now. I rely pretty heavily on loading my plate up with vegetables to keep dishes […]
So I think everyone and their cousin has heard of Mr. Holmes Bakehouse. It is one of the most instagrammed places in San Francisco and has a line wrapping around the corner each morning before they even open. If you make a pilgrimage to SF, you must stop here for a cruffin! Here’s what to […]
School is starting up again! I may not be heading to school but how much fun is it to browse for school supplies? So many fun, neat little organizer things. I definitely need more pads of paper right? What are you guys making for breakfast these busy school mornings? I have been trying to incorporate […]
Every year at work we have an annual Guac Off event where everyone brings in their best homemade guacamole. We all sample them and vote on the best. I have learned through trial and error that the best guacs are the simplest ones. I’ve made a decadent guac with roasted cherries & white pepper, I’ve […]
Today we’re making zoodles with marinara sauce in 15 minutes! Last spring Ben & I traveled all around Italy. We took a cooking class in Florence, ate pizza at its birthplace in Naples, sipped Limoncello in Sorrento, and savored gelato in Cinque Terre. I was so impressed with the high quality of food there. I […]
As you saw on Wednesday, we have the most darling little goat farm in nearby Pescadero. They make the most incredible, award winning goat cheese. If you have a chance to visit the Bay Area, its worth taking a coastal drive down Highway 1 and cutting in a little bit to see this cute country […]
