Cook up some elbow macaroni, add a can of diced or mashed whole tomatoes, mushrooms, taco meat, green peppers, sauteed onions and anything else you can think of. You now have American Chop Suey. Very filling and enough to feed the whole family. They will never know it is leftovers. You have given them protein, carbs, and veggies all in one pot.

After finishing 6 gringo tacos and all that falls off onto the plate, I use a spoon afterwards just for that.

I use diced tomatoes in my taco meat mixture instead of water as called for on the spice mix packet.

I make crispy tacos, burritos, chili, chili mac & cheese, taco mac & cheese, mix with wild rice, freeze for later.

I like to mix it with mac'n'cheese or rice with some diced tomatoes for a nice casserole. You can also use it with crescent rolls and make a Mexican calzone!

I've done this, too, but I add a cup of corn and a can of black beans to make it a bit more substantial, along with taco sauce or salsa for seasoning.

You can also mix the leftover taco meat with cheese and make quesadillas.

Exactly how much "leftover" taco meat do you normally have?

I make breakfast enclhiladas with scrambled eggs and my home made chorizo, but I guess you could use taco meat instead. I use one egg and a tablespoon of chorizo for each enchilada. I fry up the chorizo, add whisked egg and cook through, roll up in tortilla(s) warmed in the microwave to soften, and plate two each. Douse with enchilada sauce (red or green) and sprinkle liberally with shredded Mexican cheese of choice. Serve with Mexican (NOT SPANISH!) rice and some kind of beans. I always use whole beans because refried beans reminds me of canned dog food.

If you'd like the recipe for Mexican rice, or for the home made chorizo, just ask.

I add the beans and corn to my meat mixture in the first place so it's already in there!
