Tacos Party Snack

Tacos Party Snack

It is not an easy job to prepare the perfect party food. The people will come hungry, but the party is not the time to serve dinner. And this doesn’t mean that you have to leave your guests hungry. The simplest solution of this problem is to cook something that is easy to be prepared, but delicious, nutritious and A LOT. The first thing that comes in my mind is Tacos. You can make a dip taco snack, or one-bite tacos and if you do it right, you will have a huge amount of food for your guests. I will show you two recipes for taco snack and you can decide which one to prepare for your party (or maybe both). Take a look:

Crock-pot Pork Tacos. 

The great thing about the greatest thing about the crock-pot pork is that you can prepare it for cooking for less than 5 minutes, and then let it cook itself alone while you deal with your other tasks for the day or the other preparations for the party. So, here are the ingredients for this snack. Write down the needed ingredients in a shopping list and prepare before the cooking:

  • 2 to 3 lb. pork roast or stew meat. Boneless.

  • 2 cups liquid broth or water.

  • Homemade tacos or your favorite ones from the store.

  • Tomato or cherries for the taco filling.

  • Green lettuce.

  • Sour cream.

  • Salt and pepper for the seasoning.

Place the pork in the crock-pot or the slow cooker and sprinkle it with taco seasoning or salt and pepper to taste. Then add the two cups of broth or water. I recommend you to use broth, because it will give a better taste to the meat. You can use a vegetable broth or beef broth, according to your preferences. You can let it cook for 5 or 8 hours, according to the time you have, just adjust the heat. If you want to cook it for less hours, set the heat on high option.

When the meat is ready, take it out of the crock-pot and shred it with forks. If it is fully cooked, it will shred effortlessly.

Then bake the tortillas according to the instructions on the package, fold them in order to make a pocket for the stuffing and start filling them in with the meat, chopped tomatoes, lettuce and sour sauce. Done!

The next suggestion is an avocado dip for taco bites. Take a look at the ingredients:

  • 4 avocados

  • 1/2 cup salsa

  • 1/2 tablespoon of garlic

  • 1/2 tablespoon of sea salt

  • Lemon juice

The most important and delicate step to make the perfect avocado dip is to choose the best avocados. The skin must be dark and they have to be slightly soft.

Cut the avocados in half, remove the pyrene and the skin and place them in a large bowl. Use a potato masher to mix the avocados with the other ingredients.

The lemon will flatter the taste of the avocado and also, it will prevent the dark brown color that appears after the avocado stay out of its skin. Enjoy the snack!
