Throw a TFG Taco Party
Two Funny Girls is always keeping up with what’s #trendy (at least, we try) and lately it has been totally TACOS! The perfect party food for your next Taco Tuesday girls’ night, family dinner, graduation party, engagement party or Cinco de Mayo celebration, it’s pretty undeniable that this fun fiesta food is a hit. While we can’t ship you your favorite taco creation, we can customize fun cups, napkins and more to go with it.
Let’s kick this off with our latest design, an Otomi print that is both chic and festive. You can shop them in a sleeve of 10 (they are 16 oz each) and each cup is wrapped in our colorful Mexican embroidery/Otami design with brightly colored rabbits, roosters, butterflies, flowers and leaves. We love the shatterproof option so you can keep them on-hand all year for any taco night, party or Monday margarita. Speaking of tequila….
Mango Margaritas by The Rose Table
These margaritas have a fun mango twist and are perfect to whip up for your next gathering. Make in a pitcher and serve in your new shatterproof Otami cups!
16 cups mango puree (two mango puree boxes)
6 cups pineapple juice (one large can)
6 cups tequila (you can also swap the tequila for vodka!)
2 cups mezcal
Mango slices for garnish
You literally just mix all of these in a punch bowl and serve. It doesn’t get any easier than this! TFG tip: throw in some custom wood drink stirrers for added margarita madness.
Taco ‘bout a party. What are some ways you choose to celebrate with a fiesta flair? We’ve seen it all: graduation parties, engagements, weddings and of course Cinco de Mayo! No matter the occasion, you can always count on a taco bar to be the gathering spot of the party. Set yours up by decorating a long table with colorful tablecloth (this also helps with easy cleanup). Use small bowls to line up your fillings – you’ll want a protein for base and then get creative from there! Either way, no taco bar is complete without our linun paper napkins. You can customize them for any fiesta or stock up and bring as a gift for the hostess.
If you’re looking to elevate your typical taco recipe, you have to try these Korean Shredded Beef Tacos from What Molly Made. Not only do they add a fun twist to taco night, they are also an easy and healthy alternative. Oh, and they’re made in an Instant Pot.. so.. EASY.
Korean Shredded Beef Tacos by What Molly Made
For the Beef:
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
2.5 pounds chuck roast
1 tablespoon fresh ginger grated
3 garlic cloves minced
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons olive oil (you can swap with ghee or coconut oil #health)
1 medium yellow onion thinly sliced
½ cup coconut aminos or soy sauce
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon tapioca flour (or cornstarch)
For the Sriracha Mayo:
¼ cup mayo
1 tablespoon sriracha
2 teaspoons lime juice
For the Tacos:
Diced red onion
Pat your chuck roast dry and sprinkle both sides of beef with pepper. Turn your Instant Pot on saute and add the 1 tablespoon of oil then sear both sides of chuck roast for 2-3 minutes on each side.
Remove beef from the instant pot and cut the beef into 6 large chunks. It will still shred, this just helps the beef cook faster. With it still on the saute setting, add the other tablespoon of oil and melt in the pan. Add garlic, grated ginger, sesame oil, onion, 1/4soy sauce and maple syrup to the instant pot. Mix well and place the chuck roast back on top of the sauce ingredients.
Close the lid of the Instant Pot and seal the pressure gauge. Set the Instant Pot to manual (or pressure cook) on high pressure and cook for 45 minutes. You can also leave the roast whole and cook on low pressure for 2 hours.
In the 30 minutes before the beef is done cooking, make your sriracha mayo dressing. Mix all of the sriracha mayo ingredients together in a small bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
When the beef is done cooking, you can either naturally release or quick release the pressure Natural release is preferred. For natural release, don’t do anything when the time is up and just let the pressure cooker release naturally, which can take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes. You’ll know it’s ready when the nozzle clicks and the lid unlocks! To quick release, carefully turn the knob and let the jet of steam out to release pressure quickly. Once released, carefully remove roast and place on a cutting board.
In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together the tapioca starch or cornstarch with the remaining ¼ cup of soy sauce until dissolved. Turn the Instant Pot back to saute mode and add the tapioca starch mixture to the sauce and stir until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Add the beef back to the thickened sauce and shred using two forks. Close the lid and place back on warm setting while you assemble the taco ingredients.
Serve in warm tortillas topped with chopped cilantro, diced red onion, sesame seeds, avocado, kimchee or sriracha mayo.
If you prefer a canned Mang-O-Rita to putting in the work yourself (no judgement here), we still have you covered. Shop our slim can insulated hugger to keep your ‘rita chilled all party long. They’re also great if you prefer a classic Corona on the side of your chips and guac.
Of course, Two Funny Girls never lets you show up to any party empty handed. The perfect gift for the fiesta’s host or hostess? A sleeve of on-theme cups, of course! Grab a bottle of tequila en-route and arrive in style. We have styrofoam and plastic available, so you can opt for a one-time gift or fiesta all year long.
