What’s cookin’? Kind of Sort of Taco Wraps
This is one of Aaron’s all-time favorite meals, and I don’t even know what to call it. We refer to these just as “wraps” but they’re not what you’d normally think of as wraps. They’re more like tacos, perhaps? But not really tacos… They’re good. A great way to use up leftovers, and quick and easy to throw together. And you get to eat it all inside a tortilla which makes me happy.
Cook yourself up some diced up potatoes. When I have time, I just dice up red potatoes, toss them in EVOO, season them up and roast them at 425 until they’re done. When I’m not on top of things and haven’t planned ahead, this happens. They get fried up in canola oil. This way also makes it a one skillet meal… but you can save yourself a few calories and guilt and roast them and the wraps turn out just as tasty.
Set the cooked potatoes aside (or while they’re roasting in the oven) brown up 1/2 lb of ground beef and then season it with taco seasoning. Pardon my nail polish testing…
Toss in a can of black beans. Drained.
Right here I’d normally toss in some frozen corn. But I had a little leftover creamed corn from our chicken fried steak dinner the other night… so I used that instead. And it was good.
Mix it all together. Let each new addition incorporate and cook off it’s liquids before you add in the potatoes to avoid potato mush.
…Meanwhile make your picky 2 year old a delicious grilled cheese because he’s not gonna touch any of this.
I had half of an avocado leftover, so I mashed it up with a little seasoning salt and lime juice.
Here’s how we like to dress ‘em up… Some avocado or guac, sour cream, shredded cheese, I like the Chipotle Tobasco (Aaron refers to it as “ass sauce”. He’s not a fan.) All of that on some nice fresh tortillas. And don’t forget the grilled cheese sandwich. You’ll need that.
There ya have it! Deliciousness all wrapped up in a tortilla. Easy peasy and very tasty! You can also use leftover steak, grilled chicken, really any kind of leftover meat will work! Enjoy!
