You have probably heard of the four essential food groups before, but for us, it is a bit different. Our four essential food groups? Tortillas, salsa, cheese, and avocado!

Nothing quite hits the spot like quality Mexican food. Of course, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are more hesitant to eat out. But now, people are enjoying Mexican food at home in a whole new way.

People are making Mexican food charcuterie boards that are as beautiful as they are delicious. Whether you are looking to get your snack on for football weekends or have a nice, quiet dinner with friends (over Zoom, of course), these boards are the perfect option.

The boards can include tacos, chips, black beans, salsa, and whatever else you fancy! The best part is the whole thing takes such minimal preparation. After all, cooking for hours on end, just so we can spend all of 15 minutes eating, is a major scam. However, there is one important item you may want to take some preparing: margaritas!

We cannot wait to post up on the couch with one of these boards and a tall, frosty beverage. Everyone has earned a moment or two of relaxation right now. So, we are going to be putting on our stretchy pants (shout out to Joey Tribbiani) and vegging out.
