Let’s Taco About a Party

I am one of those annoying people that love their birthday. Dec 2018 was no different.

I decided to do a make-your-own taco party for two main reasons:

  1. I could organise and prepare before hand so I wasn’t going to be stuck in the kitchen all night and could actually enjoy my party
  2. It caters for meat eaters, vegetarians, picky eaters etc and everyone gets to pick and choose what they want

I did have a lot of help for this party (my boyfriends maid helped me with the majority of the cooking), and my boyfriend took on hosting duties as well since I held it at his house.


On the menu…

  • Beef Tacos
  • Mexican Chicken Tacos
  • Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpeas tacos
  • Mexican corn salad
  • Cheesy Nachos


  • Shredded iceberg lettuce
  • Shredded red cabbage
  • Chopped white onion
  • Chopped coriander
  • Sliced yellow peppers
  • Chopped chilies
  • Finely chopped spring onion
  • Baby red tomatoes cut into quarters
  • Jalapenos
  • Roasted butternut


  • Shredded cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Natural yougurt


  • Mild salsa
  • Hot salsa

I think the hit of the night was my cheesy nachos- it was demolished in minutes!

I made way too much food (although I had multiple cancellations on the day), so a lot of it is still in the freezer for a day when I feel like tacos again! I also had a variety of soft tacos and hard shelled ones for variety.


As far as hosting goes, it was relatively stress free and I would recommend having a taco party to anyone else not wanting to be stuck behind a wall and worried.


A big thank you to all those who came.
