How to Host a Mexican Taco Bar Fiesta

Fiestas are colorful, joyous and fun.  This vibrant theme works for so many different occasions: birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, etc. which makes them ideal to have at almost any time of the year.

For this Fiesta we created the ultimate Taco Bar featuring an Authentic Guacamole Recipe that has been passed down to one of our co-Founders by her Madre (Mother).  It's simple and absolutely delicious!  You can find this amazing Guacamole Recipe here...

MAKE THE PARTY FESTIVE AND COLORFUL

Making the party festive and full of color came together easily with the Riles & Bash Mexican Fiesta Streamer Backdrop with Crepe Paper Fiesta Flowers and Ruffled Party Streamers kit.

We started by creating a backdrop behind our Taco Bar table with the assortment of vibrant streamer colors.

Then we added the different size crepe paper fiesta flowers and to finish it off we hung the ruffled streamers so they could cascade across the backdrop adding the perfect final touch.

You can find step-by-step instructions on How to Create the Fiesta Backdrop here. 

For our table, we draped it with a Mexican blanket and added some cacti and succulents, as well as a few little Mexican decor pieces for added flare.

MEXICAN FOOD FOR YOUR FIESTA

Once the backdrop and table were set, it was time to bring the food to the table:

The main filling for our tortillas was arrachera, which is Spanish for skirt steak or flank steak.  It was marinated in lime and salt for about 20 minutes before it was cooked. 

For the amount of flavor this meat had you would have thought it was more than just lime and salt.

The table was filled with all of the fixings that you would want for your tortilla: 

  • pickeled jalapeno peppers
  • salsa
  • queso
  • red & yellow peppers
  • limes for a little squeeze of lime juice

ADD FUN DETAILS TO YOUR TACO BAR

One of the favorites from the Taco Bar was the Mini 7 Layer Dip with Homemade Cactus Chips.  These Cactus Chips are simple to make and your guests will absolutely love the cuteness factor.

You just need a cactus cookie cutter to cut the shapes out of spinach flavored tortillas, and then bake for 2-4 minutes at 350 degrees.  Here are step by step instructions for How to Make Cactus Chips.
