  1. Sorry for the late reply guys. The Tacos turned out better than I had expected. Seemed as if I was fretting too much as everything was pretty much intact till the evening!


    I think I was a little too overzealous and added a bit too much water on top of the Guac as when I finally opened it, the bottom portion had become all watery, but thankfully the upper layer had some consistency left.


    I've attached a pic (she added the sourcream herself) . . Just that the taco shells seemed a little uncooked despite me blitzing them in the microwave for a lot more than what was asked for. But in all, it turned out well.


    Can';t thank you guys enough for the advice though! Look forward to troubling you'll again😄

    Ah! Then it sounds like you need to have them assembled as much as possible before you head out! :D You still need to make sure the chicken doesn't sit warm for too many hours. Either cook and refrigerate it tonight, then reheat before you go, or cook it in the morning just before you start assembling the tacos.


    Incidentally, I just looked at the instructions for the type of crispy taco shells I've used. They say that for microwave reheating you should fan them out so they aren't overlapping much (take them out of their package first) and microwave for about 45 seconds. 

    I can still assemble them in the car upon reaching though right? Assembling all the filling in the Taco shell might make it soggy by time I reach, wouldn't it?


    heating the shells and the chicken filling just before you leave and then storing them in something that will keep them warm for transport is the way I would go

    I don't have a cooler, but I'll try to see if I have any airtight boxes I can use for this purpose. Cooking them tomorrow in the morning seems a bit more practical to me (I may be wrong)


    Guess I;ll just make everything in the morning.I have seen how they store Guacamole in a box and cover it with 1/2 inch of water. That sounds quite doable. 


    How many hours after cooking in the morning do you think I have before all this goes stale? 



  3. Hey guys, this is my first post here, so please be kind if this sounds a little stupid :)


    I am planning to make Tacos for my girlfriend for her birthday as she loves Tacos. We live about an hour away, so I will be carrying the Tacos with me in the car.


    I am going to make the Chicken filling, Salsa & Guacamole along with Lettuce base. I couldn't get any Tortilla wraps, but I did get those crunchy Taco Shells so I'm gonna have to make do with those. I have a few queries :-


    1. How long will the Chicken, Salsa & Guac remain fresh? I mean I can cook them and carry them immediately, but ideally I would like to cook tonight and keep them in the fridge. But how?

    2. The Taco Shell box is advising me to pre-heat them in the oven. I have a microwave, so how do I do that?

    3. And if I preheat in the microwave, when would be a good time to do that? Tonight and then store in an airtight box, or tomorrow just before I set out?


    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks :)
