There aren’t many foods as universally loved as tacos, and it’s in part owed to their versatility. You can go traditional with ingredients like ground beef, lettuce, Pico de Gallo, cheese, and sour cream. You can go healthy with ingredients like grilled shrimp or fish and tangy slaw. You can even go the brunch route with scrambled eggs, peppers, onions, and sausage or bacon. And whether you’re a corn or flour tortilla or soft or hard shell fan, there’s only one problem with beloved tacos: They can be cumbersome to serve, especially to a crowd.
Setting up a toppings bar will make for an Instagrammable table of course, but it’s not very practical. You’ll end up doing tons of dishes and toppings will undoubtedly be dropped everywhere while in transit from toppings bowl to taco. Also, if you’re serving a big crowd, the line can get long and slow as guests cautiously top their tacos. Luckily, we have an amazing solution.

You can also place pre-topped tacos in the holder for guests to grab and go. As it becomes empty, simply top the tacos yourself and replace them in the holder.

Since the taco holder won’t hurt your wallet too badly, you could even invest in two or more for an ultimate taco serving line.
