Tacos Repurposed

05 May

It’s no secret that I love tacos.  But one of the great things about making tacos is that there are often leftovers, and sometimes it’s fun to do something a little different with the leftovers than simply make more tacos.  Which is what I did for lunch today.

Quesadilla day!  It was a regular lunchtime fiesta (a day early for cinco de mayo!).

Easy to make and tasty – a winning combination.  Just start off with a tortilla, line the (entire) bottom with some cheese and then add whatever goodies you want on one half: I added some leftover taco meat and onions.  You could also add peppers, tomatoes, black beans… whatever you have available that you think would be good on a quesadilla!

Now let that cheese start to melt and get all nice and gooey! Once it does begin to melt a bit, go ahead and fold your quesadilla in half.

Almost there… Give it a few minutes on each side (to make your tortilla as toasted/crispy as you like), and then you’re ready.  Cut into some nice little triangles, add a dab of salsa, and you’ve got a nice little lunchtime quesadilla made with some recycled ingredients in just a few short minutes.

Enjoy!  Leftover tacos transformed into a different meal.
Sidenote: I realize that I’ve been slacking this past week in terms of getting posts up, but I have been super busy.  Trying to grade the kids’ final papers and final exams while preparing for quals…  I’ll try to get at least one more post up before my quals!
