Have you ever read the Dis after a holiday or birthday party? Two threads really stick out to me. The cake versus pie at a birthday and how many people would be ticked if they didn't get their cake. Or the one where the mom was going to serve turkey sandwiches and people were flat out telling her their kids would have to go hungry because they will only eat ham. On top of that, there are countless threads after the holiday on how horrible the dinner was because Aunt Mabel didn't serve homemade mac n cheese or grandma used canned beans instead of fresh. Pages and pages and pages of complaints about foods served at different events has caused me to become a bit anal on this topic. I want my guests to be happy. I know a taco without meat is a big thing for some people. I just wanted to make sure that most wouldn't care for one meal.

I honestly don't know any meat eater that has to have meat with every meal. You certainly have a great variety of things that anyone could find something to enjoy.

You are right.

If someone said they were having a taco bar and only serving Beef, someone would chime in with "but what about people who only eat chicken?"

If it were me, I would serve some meat with it as well. I think it would be appreciated by some.

I'd be fine. What you're serving sounds yummy.

If a friend invited me to dinner and I knew they did not eat meat, I would not expect them to prepare it for me. I'd honestly be surprised to be served meat in that situation.

1. I am a meat-eater.
2. A Die-hard meat-eater.
3. I would really enjoy your lunch as it is as it has beans in it.


It isn't so much the meat, it is the need for protein for me. I would love to be invited over!


I would NEVER expect any of my plant-based eatin' friends to serve meat and it would not even cross my mind to think, "Gah, she's NOT serving meat!"

If they are an ethical vegetarian it goes against all their principles. I would just serve what you were planning. If they want meat they hit taco bell on the way home.

My SIL is a vegetarian for ethical reasons. She always cooks meat for company. She cooked a delicious turkey and ham dinner for Easter! No, not every vegetarian feels that way.

I'd be fine with it, especially since you are providing cheese. I'd be more disappointed if you had meat but no cheese . I'd be thinking to myself, "I wish we'd volunteered to bring the grated cheddar." I always think the same thing when we go to a cookout and there's no cheese for the burgers.

We have some friends who make a really good vegetarian enchilada dish with so much stuff in them that it's hard to tell that there's no meat in it. It's delicious, and I need to get that recipe from them. It may have cheese in it; I can't remember.

I'm a confirmed meat-eater but we often have vegetarian tacos. In fact, I almost prefer them without meat. Everyone will be just fine.

I would be fine with it...it sounds really good to me. My DH and Kids would like it too....but I know some folks who would not be very thrilled with it (like our folks...but they also wouldn't be too thrilled with any Mexican meal, even with meat).

My DH doesn't eat beans or most vegetables, so it would be a lunch of chips & salsa for him.

If we're going to one of our vegetarian friends houses, we know we are eating meatless.
