Taco Tuesday is Just the Start

Taco Tuesday is almost here and you better believe we’ll be celebrating with tacos, margaritas and all the chips and dips! Since we enjoy build-your-own Mexican-themed boards often, it’s the perfect time for me to share a round-up of our favorite ways to eat tacos, quesadillas, taco salads, burrito bowls and even margaritas on a board.

Build-your-own boards are the best, especially when there are a lot of different options that would make everyone happy! Each person gets to build their meal, snack or drink just the way they like it. I hope you take inspiration from these boards and use it to build a board that you and your loved ones would enjoy most.

Add foods that you always eat with tacos or mix-ins that are a must for your perfect margarita. Build your board small to feed just a few or big to feed a crowd. The beauty is that you can use whatever you want and it’s sure to be enjoyed by all! These boards are all so perfect to enjoy on Cinco de Mayo, Taco Tuesday, or any day really!

Build-Your-Own Beef Taco Board with Quesadillas

Beef is usually a crowd favorite for us when it comes to tacos. It’s so easy to make taco meat with ground beef and we all enjoy it, especially on a hard taco shell. The only thing missing from this board, that we really like on our tacos, is shredded lettuce & chopped cilantro which we just didn’t have on hand. We still built and enjoyed some tasty tacos though! I added some quesadillas and a trio of dips with chips to this board too. It was a huge hit! Watch THIS VIDEO to see how I built the board.

Build-Your-Own Chicken Taco Board

Build-your-own salsa verde chicken tacos with mini flour tortillas, refried black beans, shredded pepper jack cheese, mexi-corn, shredded greens, chopped tomato, diced red onion, avocado slices, pickled jalapeños, limes, salsa and Cholula hot sauce along with some Mexican-seasoned rice and chips.

To quickly & easily make the salsa verde chicken, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat then add 1 lb. of lightly salted boneless, skinless chicken tenders and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Reduce the heat to a simmer and add 1/2 cup salsa verde (I use mild so all the kids will eat it), toss to coat the chicken completely then cover the pan and cook 5-7 minutes or until chicken is tender and shreds easily with a fork. Add additional salsa, if desired.

Place the warm chicken, beans, rice & tortillas on the board just before serving. Enjoy!

Everyone loves burrito bowl night! We’ll even make this board for lunch on the weekends. We start building our bowls with rice, lettuce, beans and/or chicken and then top it off with our choice of avocado, cheese, tomatoes, shredded carrots, jalapeños, green onions, red onions, a variety of salsas and maybe a squeeze of lime and a shake of hot sauce with our favorite chips on the side. Each of our bowls is built differently yet we’re all deliciously satisfied!
