We had a lot of ribs leftover from dinner last night, so I knew I wanted to use the meat somehow for dinner tonight. But, since the meat was already cooked, I didn’t want to recook it in some kind of sauce or casserole and make it tough.
So, it’s Tuesday – why not make a taco out of it?! Tacos are so easy to make and I made it even easier (and dare I say fun!?) but putting it on a board and calling it a ‘make your own dinner adventure’. Amelia LOVEDDDD this. Matilda, well, she’ll eat most things I put in front of her these days so I’ll take that as she loved it too. 🙂
Boards are an easy way to make dinner during the week and so is not having to actually do the work to assemble dinner for 4!
Questions? Lemme know!
Taco Board with Homemade Guacamole
- 1 ripe avocado
- Juice of 1/2 small lime
- 1 small garlic clove, grated on a microplane
- 2 sprigs cilantro, finely chopped
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- Everything but the bagel seasoning, to taste
- 1 cup cooked white rice
- 1 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
- 1/4 red onion, diced
- 1/2 cup cooked corn
- 1 cup cooked pork (I used leftovers from my ribs last night!)
- 1/2 cup hummus
- 1 tomato, diced
- 8-10 mini street flour tacos
- First, make the guacamole – cut avocado in half and remove the stone in the middle. Place flesh of guacamole on a cutting board and smash with the back of a fork until big chunks are broken down. Place smashed avocado in a small bowl and mix with lime juice, garlic, cilantro and seasonings. Place in a small serving bowl and set aside.
- To assemble the taco board, place lots of small bowls around the board and fill with rice, black beans, red pepper, red onion, corn, pork, hummus, tomatoes and flour taco shells. Serve immediately and enjoy!
