Our favorite night of the week is Tuesday — for so many reasons. We love tacos, and we love tequila even more — they happen to pair well with each other, and would be perfect for a Tuesday night fiesta. We prefer to call it a fun-filled night of savory tacos and delicious margaritas.

Tacos begin with the shell of your choice — do you like flour or corn tortillas? — but what goes inside is most important. Tacos originally contained beef, but now they’re made with various meats — from poultry to pork to healthier options such as fish or tofu tacos.

Hosting people tonight could make you nervous, but don’t fret, because we have you covered. Grab your favorite bottle of tequila, whip up a banging guacamole, and serve your friends some of these easy-to-create recipes.

5 Ingredient Mexican Quinoa

This 5 Ingredient Mexican Quinoa is packed with tons of protein and delicious flavor! The recipe comes to Bob’s Red Mill courtesy of Chef Billy Parisi, and it’s loaded with peppers, tomatoes, corn, beans and chopped cilantro . The sliced avocado is optional, but we suggest including it for an extra boost of potassium, fiber and heart-healthy fats. To make this dish “appetizer friendly,” set it out in a large bowl with smaller bowls to the side for guests to serve as they’d like. Alternatively, you can also portion it yourself into small cups or bowls and serve it as a tray-passed appetizer while guests mingle and chat. For variations on this dish, you can add shredded chicken or yellow and green bell peppers (in addition to the red) for a rainbow of colors. You can also use less quinoa and more black bean and corn salsa and serve it alongside homemade tortilla chips. To give this appetizer an extra special touch, serve each portion with a small lime wedge, so your guests can squeeze fresh citrus onto their dish as they please. Cotija cheese or shredded cheddar is a nice addition, too.

Now that you’ve built a great party with our taco bar ideas, it’s time to add an essential accessory to any taco party - the drinks!

Offer adults spicy lime margaritas on the rocks - they’re simple, delicious, and wash down tacos perfectly. Or, if cocktails seem too involved, go for a case of Mexican Cerveza.

Try virgin blended margaritas for any underage kids or teens, or buy a few cases of assorted Mexican soda, like Jarritos, and enjoy watching people of all ages stuff themselves with your delicious taco bar!
