How to make a Mexican themed Charcuterie Board
I love how you can make a charcuterie board fit any kind of theme or occasion. Simple swaps of ingredients and you have a whole new kind of board. I took this Mexican themed charcuterie board to a taco night at a friend’s house and it was a huge hit! We all had fun chatting and sampling the offerings on the board. There was something that everyone could eat on this board, no matter what kind of plan they were on. As I have mentioned in several other posts, charcuterie boards are the perfect thing to take to a gathering. This board is both gluten free and low carb or keto if you don’t nosh on the crackers and instead use the cucumbers as your vessel.
Here is what I used to create this Mexican themed board:
- Cheese– Queso Fresca and Chipotle Gouda
- Meat – Chorizo and Bresaola
- Vegetables – red, yellow and orange mini peppers, cucumbers
- Crackers – I love multi-textured seedy crackers because they look great on the board!
- accompaniments- capers, olives and mustard
TO ASSEMBLE THE BOARD:
Place the bowls down first and fill the bowls with capers, olives and mustard. Next place the cheese and then the meats. Be sure that you are alternating colors so like colors are not right next to one another. After the cheese and meats are placed, fill in the rest of the board with and veggies and gluten free crackers.
Taking this Mexican Themed Charcuterie board will for sure be a big hit at your next gathering or event!
