Please don’t think I’m crazy, but I’ve been dreaming of this taco board for a very long time. I’m a total sucker for a cheese board and love that you can put one out at happy hour or for a casual get together and people can serve themselves and graze at their leisure. There’s no official call to serving time and no end to the options and combinations you can present. So if a cheese board is such a great idea, why stop there? Why not a taco board?! Because as much as I love cheese, it’s safe to say it pales in comparison to my love for tacos. Also, this salad board that I used is my new favorite kitchen item. It’s admittedly pricey, but looks great as a countertop accessory when layered with our other wood boards, makes a great cheese platter (the rim is key!), and is the most genius way to serve salads since every part of the salad gets an equal amount of toppings so people who serve themselves last aren’t left with plain greens like so often happens with a bowl. But I digress.

I hear so often that people want to host or have people over more frequently, but don’t think they have the time to pull it all together. While you could certainly make all of this at home, we instead ordered to-go from one of our favorite Mexican spots in town and picked it up. This self-serve taco bar combined with our favorite margarita recipe and you’re ready to fiesta!
