We love tacos any day of the week though, and a taco board is fun to make for company! This recipe today serves about ten people, but that can vary, depending on whether you want it to be an appetizer board or a meal. For a big crowd, you may even love my popular Easy Taco Recipe Dinner Board (on the round board) or this Easy Pork Carnitas Taco Board.

What’s your hosting style?

I know, so many of us are just waiting to be able to host again. Truly I believe great entertaining is all about “blessing” people–whatever your style, type of cook that you are, design of your house, how many kids you have running around, whether you’re an empty-nester, etc.

So, what’s your style … casual like mine? Boards can be are casual, which is why I love them. But boards can be used if you’re more formal too!

Taco boards are exceptionally good on the weekends, too!

How to keep the tacos hot?

  1. Bake the tacos and keep warm in the oven.
  2. On the board, leave space for the serving plate, and build around it (whilel the tacos are baking or staying warm in the oven).
  3. Right before serving, place the hot plate of tacos in the center of the board (on a hot pad) and SERVE!

Entertaining is simply about hosting guests in a delicious and loving way. It’s about spending time with, and taking care of, people. I love how mature that sounds. It’s nothing to take lightly. Hosting is a gift you can give to others! I’m so gad that we’ll be able to host larger groups again very soon, and I can’t wait. You, too?

For now, talk it over with your family, decide who to invite over, who you want to get to know better, and plan a get-together!

Pull out The Big Board and make it fun for your people! Also, don’t forget tacos are FUN to serve on a Lazy Susan Board, too!
