This dinner "re-do" is my first inspiration to rework my leftovers to create another meal. For example...A few days ago, I made Italian Beef in the crockpot (3 1/2 lbs). It was really good that night and Terry even shared some with his work crew the next day for lunch. But we were still left with a good sized Ziploc container full of the stuff and fairly tired of eating it anymore. I knew that I wanted to use the leftovers to create a new dinner, but wasn't sure what direction to go! I checked out the pantry and found Pace Picante Sauce and taco shells. Perfect! I was going to make beef tacos with the Italian Beef leftovers.
Crockpot Italian Beef to Beef Tacos
leftover Italian Beef (remove any pepperocinis)
Pace Picante Sauce
Any toppings you like - cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, etc..
It was simple. I just added the leftover Italian Beef and some Pace Picante sauce to a saucepan and heated it through on the stovetop. I baked the taco shells and gathered all of the fixin's for tacos. It literally took me just under 10 minutes to make a really great dinner!
This meal inspired me to find more "redos" for my recipes! I hope to add this as it's own section on this blog as I create more "Dinners - Round 2".
