A Latino feast

No doubt you’ve probably enjoyed tacos and other Latino treats at home or at a restaurant, but as wedding food they aren’t quite so common. Tacos makes great alternative wedding food because they can be eaten sitting or standing, they can include many different fillings (great for people with dietary requirements) and they are easy to prepare.
