If you’re looking to organize a fun evening for friends and family that’s hassle-free and not easily forgotten, look no further than tacos. Everyone loves Mexican food, and there is something so pleasing about putting together your own meal.
So, what do you need to know to host a taco bar party? And how can you make it an evening to remember?
Here are some tips.
When throwing a taco party, bringing in professional catering is a great option to save time. It will allow you to focus on the rest of the preparations, such as decorating, music, and drinks.
At Taqueria27, we have plenty of catering options for your big night, including family-style, a la carte, and staffed events. Just sit back and enjoy the delicious, authentic food our team has prepared.
There are so many delicious choices when it comes to planning your taco party menu. Whether it’s corn or flour tortillas, chicken or veggie, spicy or unusual…the different taco combinations are endless!
Make sure you don’t forget the all-important taco toppings! You’ll need plenty of cilantro, shredded cheese, and spicy salsa. Have more than enough supplies for your party. We recommend allowing for at least three tacos per person.
Don’t Forget the Side Dishes
If you’re planning a taco party for dinner, be sure to remember the side dishes in addition to the main event. Guacamole is a huge crowd-pleaser, and you’ll need plenty of tortilla chips to go around.
It would help if you also considered getting refried beans, red and green salsas, and grilled corn for an authentic Mexican feast.
Time for Tequila
No taco party would be complete without some tequila. The most famous tequila cocktail is, of course, the margarita. Please take a look at our Valentine’s Day post for four twists on the classic margarita recipe.
Some of the other tequila cocktails you could try are a tequila sunrise, made with orange juice and grenadine, or a bloody Maria. Think bloody Mary, but swap out the vodka for tequila, and you’re set!
Taco Party Decorations
Finally, you can’t forget the party decorations. Transport your guests to sunny Mexico with brightly colored plates, streamers, and balloons.
Some people opt for cactus-themed decorations, while others go all-out with a piñata. Last but not least, turn up the mariachi music and get the camera ready!
