Well it’s happening! We started our #tacotuesday tradition this week! Diesel is all over this one. He couldn’t stop talking about which toppings should go where… even the next day!
Watch the video to see what the taco bar lazy Susan looks like and the final results on our table!
We’ve still got a few tweaks to make for a more efficient Taco Tuesday, but we’ll get there.
More Taco Tuesday Gadgets I’d Like to Have
After using our taco tuesday lazy susan taco bar a few times, there are a few products I’d like to add to improve the taco bar experience!
Taco Holder Stands
I know I kinda made fun of this in the video. But I was wrong. It happens sometimes.
I don’t love the holders that came with the lazy susan bar. They are kind of big and clunky. So they don’t fit on a plate very well.
The taco holders that came in the set have a rim around the edge to catch any taco toppings that fall out. But they’re so small, the rim that is, that a 10-year-old boy who is messy (ahem… Diesel) doesn’t catch everything on the rim.
That means a plate is necessary… but they don’t fit on a big plate…
And we’re back to why I want different taco holder stands!
Here are a few I like…
Colorful Ginkgo Taco Holder Stands – Set of 6
This brand also carries a set of 6 taco holders in case you have more people in your family.
Ginkgo also carries V-shaped taco holders for soft tacos. So if your family is more into soft shells, then the V-shaped stands might be a better option.
Although they’re both so cheap, just get Vs and curves! Then you’re set for soft or hard shells!
Of course you can get the restaurant style stainless steel taco stands. They’re easy to find on Amazon. But I prefer a little color on my table.
If you’re a minimalist though, then the silver ones might be your jam.
Rectangular Plates for Taco Holder Stands
Now these taco holder stands look a little long. Which means you might also need to buy rectangular plates to set them on!
Ha! Taco Tuesday is getting serious!
OK… this might be getting a little ridiculous, but aren’t these white rectangle plates with the black outline so pretty! And they’d look great with colorful taco holders or even the stainless steel ones!
I checked all the dimensions, and they would work perfectly with any of the taco holders I have linked above… I think. You should probably double check.
Plus they’d be great for a million other things! Serving platters at parties, sushi, fish…
And I love how they scoop up a bit so any taco toppings that fall out are easily caught!
Ready to really invest in Taco Tuesday?
Nah… not really. But these white serving platters are little more expensive than the other ones.
However, they are larger and would definitely fit any taco holder you decided on. Plus, also great for serving at parties, etc.!

Taco Tuesday Cookbooks
OK… let’s move on.
There are probably many more Taco Tuesday gadgets you could use. But I think we’ve beat this horse… or this taco… dead!
One last thing… you can’t have Taco Tuesday EVERY Tuesday with the same tired ole tacos!
Check out these taco cookbooks so Taco Tuesday never gets boring!
— The Taco Tuesday Cookbook has 52 recipes to keep you covered every week of the year!
Did you know that you can look inside cookbooks on Amazon? If the image has the label “Look Inside” above it, you can usually look at the table of contents and many pages within the book.
I always try to preview cookbooks before I purchase them to see if the recipes speak to me.
Do You Want to Taco About It?
I couldn’t resist. There are so many cheesy sayings that involve tacos and all their paraphernalia. (I got lost on that Pinterest page reading all of them. Whoops!)
Ya gotta love the taco!
