  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 12 hard taco shells and tostada bowls
  • 15 ounce can of olives
  • 15 ounce can of beans
  • 1 bag tortilla chips (we used Siete brand)
  • 8 ounces salsa
  • 8 ounces queso (we used vegan Siete brand)
  • 8 ounces cooked Mexican rice
  • 2-3 individual guacamole cups
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 small bottle of hot sauce
  • 2 cups fresh lettuce, shredded
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 fresh jalapeños
  • 8 ounces Mexican wedding cookies


  • Step 1: Brown the meat and place it in a bowl then put it on your board in the bottom right hand corner
  • Step 2: Place taco shells and tostada bowls on the board near the meat
  • Step 3: Add salsa, queso, olives, beans and rice to small bowls and place the small bowls around the board wherever you see fit
  • Step 4: Add the individual cups of guacamole and place the bottle of hot sauce at the back of the board
  • Step 5: Arrange tortilla chips around the bowls leaving some space for the fresh veggies
  • Step 6: Slice the avocados in half and remove pit then place them in twos on two different spots of the board
  • Step 7: Fill in the remaining space with fresh cilantro, lettuce and the jalapeños (I slice one and leave one whole for a fun look but still leaving it functional)
  • Step 8: Finish by adding it the Mexican wedding cookies to the top of the board where nothing else touching it will make them soggy or taste weird


How should I store the leftovers?

Leftover cheese, meats and veggies can be stored in the refrigerator. It is usually best to just toss leftover shells as they tend to be a bit soggy. 

How do you keep a charcuterie board fresh outside?

You can keep your perfect summer charcuterie board fresh by keeping it in a cooler environment or restocking ingredients. You can keep fresh ingredients in the fridge and restock them outside as needed.
Pro tip: Add some dark chocolate on the board for a contrast of flavors. Plus, who doesn't love chocolate?
