Taco Party

As I mentioned earlier, I recently had a taco party at my casa. It was actually a going away party for some dear friends that are moving to ALASKA!! and Arkansas. I offered to host the party, cause well I love cooking and entertaining. As I started planning, I realized I needed a theme. See, I'm a very organized, anal, slightly OCD person and themes help me organize my thoughts. I settled on a "make your own taco bar." It turned out great and really easy to put together. I decided to have two meats;
Spicy Pulled Pork and Roasted Chicken (you can roast your own or buy rotisserie chicken at the store). 
After you settle on the meat, all you need is the toppings. I served two types of fresh shredded cheese (sharp white cheddar and monterey jack), shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, hot sauce, and some lime wedges. I also had soft flour and corn tortillas and some hard corn tortillas. To stick with the theme, I also purchased a Pinata, made some Key Lime Cupcakes, and had a bucket of Corona's on hand. The party turned out great and the food allowed even the pickiest eater or those with certain diet restrictions/allergies to leave full and happy.

Looks like you two did a great job. Wasn't any doubt though. I like the pinata too! Did you happen to hang it from the ceiling to see who could bust it? Hahahaha, just kidding! Boy Marley would have gone crazy if that had happened!
