We couldn’t be happier that “spring is in the air,” because it means that eating outside just gets a little better! In Oregon, al fresco dining happens in May and ends in October, with a few rain storms in between. It’s lovely here.

If you’ve tried my Tasty Taco Mini Stuffed Peppers that I recently posted, then you’ll love these mini taco boats today! YUM!

A few years back we enjoyed these Mini Chicken Taco Boats and Jalapeño Greek Yogurt Dip for an outside dinner with our kids, a quick and easy meal! We also regularly enjoy these Rotisserie Chicken Mole Tacos Recipe and Flank Steak Tacos Recipe. I’m all about “easy” for weeknight meals.

For a “family meal,” it doesn’t take much to set a pretty table. I think sometimes we just throw the food on the table (hand raised!), but over the years, I’ve really tried to take 2-3 minutes extra to actually “set” the table with matching napkins and pretty glasses.

Not for every meal, but for most meals, I give it a little more effort, because before we know it, our kids are gone!

For this meal, we made mini tacos with Old El Paso™ Mini Soft Tortilla Taco Boats™. These Mini Taco Boats are soft flour tortillas formed into a unique boat shape, with a flat bottom making them easy to hold, less messy, and ready to be filled to the brim with “whatever floats your boat.” :) We added black beans and rotisserie chicken!

But guess what? You can totally use regular taco shells (corn or flour).

This is such an easy, convenient meal, yet fun and delicious—a great dinner option for families!

We made our favorite Jalapeño Greek Yogurt Dip, spooning it into a small ziploc bag (snipping off the corner), and drizzled the sauce over each taco.

Fill a pretty platter with tacos!

Place the platter as a centerpiece, and let everyone dig in!

  1. I wish we were neighbors so I could attend all your gorgeous gatherings!

  2. What a gorgeous tablescape! These little taco boats are perfect little party bites…especially with that tasty dip!

  3. Love those…I will have to try them. I love throwing chicken, a can of beans and salsa in a crock pot, then shredding the chicken and serving on flour tortillas. Quick and easy. But I also love a taco salad.

  4. What a beautiful table! And the menu looks terrific, too!
