Mexican Food Party - Taco Bar

Happy Satuday and welcome to Date Night and Dinner Parties.

At our last get together we had a Mexican food night.  We had a Taco Bar, 7 Layer Mexican Bean Dip, Pico De Gallo, chips and beer.  It was amazing and so much fun.  It was all laid out on the table and served family style. Perfect evening!

So, I made the taco's with 93% lean beef and the Taco Seasoning I posted here.  The beef was amazing.  Mr W pointed out that it had great flavor and perfect color.

We laid out all the topping, lettuce, tomato, onion, pico de gallo, cheese, sour cream, refried beans, spicy rice, salsa verde and red chili sauce.  It was so much fun and such great food.  Hope you enjoy!
