What do I need for Taco Night?

  • Main dish. I like to choose 1 to 3 different types of tacos to make.
  • Appetizers. Everyone loves chips and salsa. If you have extra time, cheese dip is always a hit too.
  • Side dishes. Keep it simple and easy. Refried beans and rice always make great options.

How can you keep tortillas warm?

It is important to keep the tortillas warm on a taco bar. If you aren’t careful, they will dry out and harden.

One method is to use the oven and you don’t need any special gadgets. Wrap the tortillas in foil and place in the oven at 250 degrees for 20 minutes.

When it is time to eat, remove the tortillas but keep them in the foil. They will be nice and warm for taco night.

You can also use the microwave. Put the tortillas on a plate and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 30 seconds.

How many tacos do you need per person?

Calculate 3 taco per person. There will be some that eat more and some that eat less.

However, it should all average to about 3 tacos.

What are the best toppings for tacos?

  • Shredded cheese
  • lettuce
  • guacamole
  • salsa
  • salsa verde
  • diced onion
  • diced tomato
  • sour cream

One of my favorite taco night Ideas is to set up a topping bar.
