How to Make a Taco Board: A Few Easy Tips

I have made a few boards over the years and have learned some easy tips that I always follow to create not only a delicious board but also one that will wow your guests! Always start the board by placing the largest items first, including small bowls. After, add in chips, crackers, or breads around the larger items. Next, add in meats and cheeses, making sure to scatter around the board to very the texture and colors. Then, fill in veggies and fruits creating small sections around the boards. Keep in mind you can have more than one section of the same item. Finally, fill in all the empty gaps with smaller items such as candy and a variety of nuts.

Watch this fun video to see how I put it all together!

I linked a few of the items I used for this board as well as some long wood serving boards below.
