3 Delicious Stations Any Taco Party Must Have

There is nothing better than a taco party. After all, what more could someone want than delicious Mexican food, frozen drinks, and appetizers you can eat with your hands? However, if you're looking to throw a taco-themed party, there are some things you must include so your fiesta goes off without a hitch.

So here are three things that will help your taco party be delicious and memorable for years to come.

A drink station

No fiesta is complete without authentic Mexican drinks to pair with your food spread. There are plenty of drink and taco pairings that work well together and make a great addition to any drink station. Some of our favorite pairings include:

  • Horchata and chorizo. The spicy chorizo tacos will be complemented with this traditional Mexican drink that is made from ground almonds, sesame seeds, rice, and barley.
  • Tamarind and chicken. Tamarind is a refreshing drink made from boiled tamarinds, which are a type of legume. The end result is similar to an iced tea of sorts, and pairs great with mild chicken tacos.
  • Margaritas and ... everything. No Mexican drink station is complete without the classic frozen margarita! The best thing is that they go well with any food, and you can even make them non-alcoholic for those who don't drink.

A taco bar

Take the party up a notch by letting your guests make their own tacos at a taco bar. Have our taco catering service come in and set up multiple kinds of protein so your guests can make the best tacos they've ever had. You can't go wrong by offering the traditional Carne Asada meat, but you can switch it up by adding carnitas, fish, chicken, and chorizo as options.

Plenty of sides

No taco bar is complete without toppings! No one wants to just eat meat on a tortilla, so think about adding some of the following:

  • Salsa. Salsa has become the number one condiment used nationwide, surpassing ketchup and mayo. What's great is that salsa is so extremely versatile and can be made to accommodate anyone's taste and heat preferences.
  • Cheese. Freshly shredded cheddar or queso fresco is our favorite option.
  • Onions, tomatoes, and lettuce. No taco is complete without a little texture.
  • Fresh lemons and limes. A squirt of fresh lemon or lime juice is the perfect final touch.

With these three stations, your taco party couldn't be more perfect! So now all you have to do is prepare your taste buds and get ready to feast.
