Build Your Own Taco Board

Click here for my homemade taco seasoning recipe and here for my black beans recipe. To keep the ground beef and beans warm, place them on the board last or re-heat them quickly before adding on to the board.

  • large round tray or round wood board


  • hard shell taco shells warmed
  • cooked and seasoned ground beef
  • black beans see recipe link above
  • tomatoes diced
  • romaine, green leaf or iceberg lettuce chopped or shredded
  • avocado slices
  • bell peppers sliced or diced
  • shredded mozzarella or Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • tortilla chips
  • fresh salsa
  • lime wedges
  • sour cream optional


  • Using a large tray or wood board, place all the hard shell taco shells around the edge of your board or tray. Fill in the middle with all the other ingredients. To make the board less messy, I like to place most of the ingredients into small round bowls. The bell peppers, lime wedges and tortilla chips can be used to fill in all the holes or empty spaces. Serve and enjoy!
