We had taco's for dinner last night and i made way to much meat! i have about a pound of the taco meat leftover-- any ideas on how to use it in a "new" recipe?

I throw it in with mac and cheese and make a chili mac sort of dish...very yummy!

Great idea!

Nachos!!! Put a layer of tortilla chips on the bottom of a 9x13, add the meat, beans or refried beans, cheese and heat up in the oven. Add tomatoes and whatever else you want on top. Or, taco salads. You could also use the meat in a southwest style lasagna. :goodvibes:

taco twist noodle dish

1/2 to 1 pound taco meat
1 can tomato sauce
1 cup sour cream
1 box curly noodles cooked and drained
shredded cheddar cheese, 1 cup or so

mix all together and top with more shredded cheese
bake at 350 till all melted and flavors come together

my family loves this. i usually do a double batch and we eat it up!
