Who is José Olé?

I recently found out about José Olé mini tacos and taquitos at my local grocery store. These boxes are the perfect amount when hosting a party, snack time, lunch or a light dinner. It is versatile and can bring out so many fun meals!

Here are a few things that I love about José Olé:

  • Taste and Satisfaction: Their food is powerfully delicious and packed with crave worthy flavors that you can’t find anywhere else.
  • Nutrition and Fulfillment: Quality Ingredients means their food is made with high quality ingredients like real cheese and white meat chicken, with no artificial preservatives, flavors or colors. They are protein packed and their products are NEVER just empty calories. They pack their products with protein to deliver a meal that leaves you feeling satisfied and happy.
  • Value and Convenience: Quick and easy solutions that will satisfy appetites and cravings of ALL sizes quickly. More for your money our food allows families to stock up for those moments when hunger strikes, reducing food waste and helps make meal budgets go farther.

How to Assemble the Ultimate Taco Board

It is so easy to assemble and make a taco board. Add as much or as little as you would like. The bowls can go on first while adding the other ingredients around each of the bowls. Keep everything tight and on the board itself the best that you can. All the colors pop and add such a delicious and vibrant look to the board. Your friends and family will be impressed for sure!

  1. Cook José Olé Snacks: Cook the mini tacos and taquitos in the oven or microwave according to package directions.
  2. Make the board: Add the tacos and taquitos to the board. Start assembling by adding the sides in small bowls to the board. Fill the board in with chips, cilantro, and slices limes.

What You Need!

The first thing you need to decide on, is your board and how big you want it to be with the space that you have. Then add your favorite bowls from small, medium and large. Add your main ingredients, chips and any other things you would like to fill your board with. Mix and match side dishes and dips every time you create a taco board. The options are endless!

  • Bowls: all sizes, colors and shapes. Keep it simple with cereal bowls or go all out with fun colors and mixtures depending on what you are celebrating.
  • Tacos/Taquitos: Jose Ole tacos come in a box frozen that are easy to microwave or bake in the oven.
  • Chips: Chips are perfect to fill in. They are fun to dip and snack on throughout the night. Find some fun colored chips or get a variety of chips like scoop chips or ruffle chips. Just remember to have them thick and sturdy in order to hold the dip and sauces without breaking.
  • Board: My board is 20 inch in diameter and is round. Any size and shape of board will be great! You can even use a sheet pan, cutting board or any big platter that can fit your ingredients on.

Tips for Creating the Perfect Board

The bigger the board, the better! You can never have enough food and sides to go along with it all. When friends and family gather around the taco board they are not only experiencing a taco meal but they are having a conversation and creating more together than they would apart. I love boards because it brings everyone together during a game or special night.

Use a large cutting board or baking sheet if you have the space. Start with small bowls and add in the side dishes that need spoons or forks to assist it with. Refried beans, sour cream and shredded cheese are great examples of this. Smaller bowls will contain the mess and keeps it all in the bowl. Start by putting the larger bowls on the board first. Then build around those with the extra space that is available. At the end, add fresh cilantro, lime wedges or any other seasonings throughout the board for that extra fun!

Easy Bean Dip

Make as many dips that you can. Start with small, medium and large bowls filled with your favorite dips and sauces. Place them all around the board and then add your tacos and taquitos. Bean dip is an easy recipe to start with. Either have store bought or make your own bean dip. I love bean dip and it is so simple to make. Tacos dip perfectly in the dip and add more flavor and creamy texture to all the tacos and taquitos.

Storing a Taco Board

Make sure to have plates and forks ready for each person to create their own taco masterpiece. These tacos can be smothered, dipped or snacked on. Each person can create his or her own taco and taquito plate just the way they like. Once everyone is done with munching it is best to store the tacos and taquitos in a ziplock bag or an airtight container. They can sit in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. When ready to reheat, place them back in the microwave or oven until they are warm again. For best results, only reheat them one time after they have been cooked.
