Only some of the essentials for a good Taco Bar…Bean Dip, limes, Pickled Jalapenos, black beans, guacamole, cilantro. Margaritas and corn salad doesn’t hurt either.

I don’t think I have ever met anyone who doesn’t like a good ole’ fashioned Taco Bar. So easy to prepare, perfect for a party.

Mmm…steak taco. I obviously like my steak rare.

And then there’s guacamole. Always an integral part of any taco bar or lonely chip. I like all guacs, and tend to make it different every time. Before I ever tried making it, I was convinced guacamole was this really hard thing to make…But it’s so easy to just wing it. Here’s a basic recipe:

Serves 6

  • 5 avocados, pitted
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped white or yellow onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 chopped tomato (if you like your guac “pure” you can leave this out)
  • Juice of 1 lime

Toss everything into a bowl. Mash, and salt to taste. Serve with chips.

Other additions to consider:

  • chopped red onion
  • pickled jalepeno peppers, plus a few tbsp. vinegar from the jar
