Wondering what to do with those leftovers from Cinco de Mayo?
Here is a healthy, could be vegetarian, and quick answer for you.
This is a fantastic taco salad, and so simple to make with those Mexican food leftovers. We had fajitas a few nights ago, and I had a lot of extra meat and fixins (as we say in Texas).
I shredded up some lettuce, chopped tomatoes, cubed some cheese, sliced avocados and then added my leftover meat and beans. Add a few more fixins and…
My husband was eating this as is, when I asked him if he was going to add the dressing. He told me he didn’t want the extra calories. Well, guess what? The salad dressing is good for you too!
Quick and easy meal. And you know, we had leftovers of THIS meal, so tomorrow, I can throw all those leftovers into a tortilla and make a delicious burrito.
Also, I paired my salad with this recipe for black bean and corn salsa. It added sweetness to each bite.
If you wanted to do something crazy, leave out the meat and make this a vegetarian meal!
