This is what we do for small group OFTEN. And it was around even before Primal in our church, they call is Haystacks. Basically it is like layer your own taco salad, or Nachos with lots of veggies.
Typically I bring shredded chicken (crock pot with salsa the day before, shred, keep sauce on it) Or seasoned ground beef.
CHopped Romaine lettuce and Baby spinach
Then toppings, and I usually assign them to people
Chopped Toms, Onions, cucumbers, peppers, Japelenos
Salsa, Sour Cream
Chopped Avacado or Guac
And then of course the non Primal Tortilla Chips
The non primal refried beans, or just crock pot cooked pintos
And some people like rice
You set up an assembly line with the chips and the lettuce first--they can pick and choose one or both, then the protiens, and then the veg, and then salsa etc...
Fills everyone up, most items are make/prepare ahead and they can tote them in their car to church, and really not that expensive.
When I say often, my church has had it monthly! I have been going there 6 years, and they have been in existance for 15..........yeah (most USED to be vegetarians, but now they see the light........ LOL)
