Whether it’s for Cinco de Mayo or any other family night, a build your own taco bar is a fun way to bring the family together.

First, start with festive tablecloths.  You can use a green, white, and red tablecloth like I did to make the Mexican flag, or use bright colors as in the Mexican tradition.

What I like best about this is that everything is easy to make.  You can make the items from canned and boxes and they are super yummy.  You will need the following:

  • Hard and soft shells
  • Hamburger or turkey meat and seasonings
  • Refried beans (canned)
  • Corn (use canned or frozen and mix in cilantro)
  • Black beans (canned with a scoop or two of salsa)
  • Spanish rice (box)
  • Salsa (canned – hot and mild)
  • Guacamole (Wholly Guacamole)
  • Sour cream
  • Shredded Mexican cheese (bag)
  • Lettuce, tomatoes, onions
  • Tortilla chips and queso

Be sure to organize your table in order of how everyone will build their tacos.  A little planning ahead of time will eliminate mass confusion at dinner time!

Don’t forget the chips and queso!   While I am not being compensated for this post, I was provided with complimentary chips from Food Should Taste Good. I’m loving their gluten free chips!

For the centerpiece, I added some mardi gras style beads in a margarita glass, along with the Mexican flag.  Oh and speaking of margaritas, don’t forget to make some margaritas for the adults at your party!
