BABY BOY SHOWER

BABY BOY SHOWER

This baby boy shower has the theme of Mustaches, but you can easily make any theme work for both the Lunch and Dessert menu. Have you heard of, Walking Tacos? They are one of my favorites!!  there is something for everyone!! You have them put all the ingredients right into the Frito bags, add the dressing and your ready to walk around and mingle!! I served other things in addition to the walking tacos. Texas cole slaw salad and individual cornbread cupcakes. All recipes can be found below!!

Whats on the Menu:

First your going to need to get a big box of individual bags Fritos! you can find those HERE. I used some galvanized bins to hold all the Frito bags.IMG_4982

This is the list of Toppings that are my favorite! Corn, Green peppers, Red peppers, Red onion, Cilantro, Ground Turkey or Beef seasoned with taco seasoning (my favorite is Taco bell seasoning ) Chopped Tomatoes, Black Beans, Kidney Beans, Grated cheese, Olives, & Chopped Lettace. Salad Dressings you will want are Ranch and Catalina. Some of my guests wanted more of a salad so they poured their fritos on top of the lettace and added toppings that way whatever way will work! I served all the topping in 2 big lazy susan trays you can find those HERE .IMG_4983

I served the taco bar with a Texas Cole Slaw and Cornbread. I prefer the Krusteaz Brand for my cornbread, it is amazing you can find it HERE .
