This self-serve shrimp taco bar is a great way to entertain outdoors, and you don’t need a grill.

Summer entertaining doesn’t have to be complicated, time-consuming, or take you away from your guests. Keep things as quick and easy as possible. My favorite summer entertaining trick is to set up serve-yourself food stations. All you need to do is pick a theme, like this easy shrimp taco bar.

Walmart is the convenient destination for all of your summer entertaining needs – delivering a low-cost, one-stop shopping solution that saves you time and money.

Take a look at how easy it is to set this up in your own home, and then don’t forget to enter the Upgrade Your Summer Sweepstakes (details below).

This easy taco bar takes no time at all to set up, take down, and will have you spending more time outside with your guests instead of in the kitchen.

What You Need To Make A Taco Bar


  • Blue Diamond Almond Nut-Thins
  • Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Blue Diamond Almond Nut-Thins are crispy/crunchy in texture, are made with real Blue Diamond almonds, are wheat & gluten free, and contain no artificial flavors. They are also my son’s favorite crackers to snack on (he’s on a gluten-free diet).

Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is a great summer dip for any occasion. It can be eaten with fresh vegetables, protein, or crackers, such as the Blue Diamond Almond Nut-Thins.


  • Canada Dry Ginger Ale and Lemonade
  • Canada Dry Ginger Ale and Orangeade

Canada Dry Ginger Ale and Orangeade and Canada Dry Ginger Ale and Lemonade combine the classic real ginger taste of Canada Dry Ginger Ale with a splash of orangeade made with real orange juice, and a splash of lemonade made with real lemon juice, delivering a combination that is perfect for kicking back and relaxing in the summer. These carbonated beverages are made from real ginger taste with a splash of real juice, and are both Caffeine free and naturally flavored.


  • SeaPak Budweiser Beer-Battered Shrimp
  • Flour and corn soft taco tortillas
  • Broccoli coleslaw
  • Fresh lime and cilantro

SeaPak Budweiser Beer-Battered Shrimp offers the great Pub style taste at home! The shrimp is battered in Budweiser Beer, and is oven crunchy!

Tip: Single burner camp stoves are my go-to for the backyard. It’s extra handy when it takes the same gas tank as our portable grill as well. These are perfect for your guests to heat up corn or flour tortillas.

You can purchase these products, including Blue Diamond Nut-Thins, at your local supercenter.
