How to Host a Taquiza + Chipotle Beef Tacos

When I host a party I usually go overboard when it comes to the menu. I get caught up on what to serve for an appetizer, main course, side, drink, and dessert and rarely get to sit and enjoy the event.

While in Oaxaca we visited a mercado and ate lunch at a taquiza – I was blown away by the simplicity of the menu. There were no appetizers, sides, or desserts. Just good ol’ fashioned tacos and a variety of salsas and garnishes that were 10 pesos each.

Recently TABASCO reached out asking me to host a taquiza and talk about perfect timing. I had just returned from an authentic taquiza and couldn’t wait to host my very own and bring a taste of Mexico to my family and friends.

I welcome you to watch this video where I showcase footage from my Oaxaca taquiza adventure and share how to host a taquiza.
