10 Gifts for Taco Lovers
At least one person you know is obsessed with tacos. (It may even be you!) That's why we pulled together a list of gifts for taco lovers that'll put a smile on any enthusiast's face. Now pass the guac, please!
Fiesta Taco Plates
Tacos are amazing, there’s no doubt about that. But, they’re also messy—which is why this set of fiesta taco plates ($17) is #1 on our list. The colorful plates are equipped with three taco-shaped compartments, in addition to two slots for beans, rice, guac or whatever else your taco-loving heart desires. Plus, they’re microwave-safe, which makes reheating so easy. Put the plates to work with our top taco recipes.
The Taco Cleanse
We’re not usually ones to promote a cleanse, but this so-called taco cleanse is worth the read. Created and published by a group of vegan taco scientists (who knew there was such a thing?) The Taco Cleanse ($18) offers readers an inside look at authentic Tex-Mex cuisine. Learn how to make tortillas, whip up fresh picadillo and much more.
Guacamole Serving Dish
It seems like most taco enthusiasts are also fans of guacamole. What better present to get a guac-o-holic than a guacamole serving dish set ($19) featuring the mantra: “It’s five o’guac somewhere?” Each dish also comes with a six-inch serving spoon stamped with the phrase “Holy Guacamole.” Next, check out these crazy (and delicious!) ways to top your guac.
Cast-Iron Tortilla Press
If the taco lover in your life is a serious connoisseur, he or she may need a tortilla press ($24). With over 1,500 Amazon reviews, this cast iron beauty is the press to get. It’s heavy-duty and perfect for pressing tortillas (of course), tostones, arepas, empanadas or mini pie shells. Just pick up the ingredients you’ll need at any Mexican grocery store.
Ceramic Tortilla Warmer
What good is a tortilla press if you don’t have somewhere to store the goods? (You know, in the few seconds before they’re devoured.) This ceramic tortilla warmer ($23) is perfect for warming or reheating tortillas, pitas, flatbread, waffles, biscuits and more. And unlike most tortilla warmers, the Uno Casa has a tight-fitting lid that locks in freshness, keeping your tortillas tasty for longer. Use your tortillas to make these delicious apps.
World’s First Tortilla Toaster
Did you know you can actually buy a tortilla toaster? Neither did we, until we came across the “World’s First Tortilla Toaster” ($65). Why a tortilla toaster, you ask? It’s easier than warming tortillas on the stove. And way better than warming tortillas in the microwave—which can make them soggy and inedible if done incorrectly. If you like your shells on the crispy side, this baby is built to toast up to six tortillas at the same time.
Home Bar Set
Taco night isn’t really taco night without margaritas, right? This 14-piece home bar set ($40) includes everything your taco enthusiast would need to make margaritas (here’s how), sangria, martinis or any other concoctions. This drink mixer set is also equipped with a chilling effect to enhance the flavor of your cocktail, whatever it may be.
Unicorn Taco Holder
This has to be one of the best gifts for taco lovers! Let your little ones gallop to the dinner table and devour their tacos with pizzazz, thanks to this unicorn taco holder ($15). If your tiny taco lover is a picky eater, this adorable collectible is the perfect way to entice them to gobble up other foods, too, like waffles, sandwiches or one of these magical recipes.
