As I said, you can make these Taco Party Toasts ahead of time and freeze for later. I do this all the time and it is such a great time saver. Assemble the toasts and freeze unbaked. When you are ready to cook the toasts, take them out of the freezer and thaw completely before popping under the oven broiler. You can even speed the process along by thawing them in the microwave if you are pressed for time.
