During the holidays I was invited to a fun party with friends. The hostess asked each of to bring a charcuterie board or platter with fun food to share. Someone brought an adorable hot chocolate station. There were crackers and cheese/fruits and veggies. A whole spread of deliciousness. It was a really fun way to share food.

I ended up putting together a Taco Board (platter!) that was a big hit. I thought I’d bring the idea along to share with you all today, as the Super Bowl is this weekend and one or two of you might be joining with friends or family to enjoy the game and each other. If you are looking for a comprehensive list of SUPER BOWL RECIPES click HERE.

Now, let me tell you about this fun board.

I found these cute Mini Taco Slider Shells and these little Street Taco Flour Tortillas.

I wanted to be sure there were a lot of veggie options so I roasted up some Bell Peppers, Onions and Zucchini in the oven.

I also included black beans, corn, cheese, shredded lettuce, salsa, sour cream and placed a few limes here and there.

I had some TACO MEAT that had been ordered from Taco Time. (Did you know you can order meat there? It’s actually pretty reasonable and freezes super well.) At the end of this post I’ve added a great, simple TACO MEAT you could use.

Here are a few more ideas you could use for the meat portion of the tacos…

CHICKEN TACO MEAT, uses rotisserie chicken. Super simple!




Here is a great fresh GUACAMOLE recipe, if you’d like to add it…


…and a fantastic PICO DEGALO recipe as well.

Lot of fun options with this idea, everyone. I hope it is helpful to some of you!

Have a great day, everyone. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  1. Oh, my gosh, I love taco meat so much. I really just want to sprinkle the lettuce and tomatoes on top and go at it with a spoon.
