Last month, I took a quick trip down to Dallas to visit my brother and sister-in-law. In the short time I was there we hit up a lot of delicious restaurants. One of them being Velvet Taco. It was so unique and not authentic-mexican in any way BUT it was so good. I still dream about the shrimp and grits taco.
They served your tacos in a cool metal tray and obviously I was like "hello! I want to make this!" and since I've been on an acrylic kick - acrylic was the way to go. You can whip these up in less than 10 minutes and they are the perfect party tray to keep those tacos in place and pretty at the same time!
Materials: 18x24inch piece of acrylic cut into thirds (your home improvement store can do this), heat gun, painters tape, measuring tape, 2 pieces of scrap wood, tacos.
You'll need to flip the acrylic over after you shape it so it will droop the opposite way. Make sure it cools off and hardens in place before moving on to the next. Fill with your favorite tacos and serve!
Now I want to know... what your favorite tacos? I'm always looking to try a new recipe!
