Taco night happens to be one of my favorite nights. It’s right up there behind burrito night. It’s easy. Chop, chop, brown the ground beef, stick it out on the table and let everyone assemble dinner for themselves. Nothing like getting everyone involved in the process.
Really, it’s all about the guacamole for me, but that is not a subject for today.
My second favorite thing about taco night is that it makes wonderful leftovers. Not taco salad leftovers, although those are good too; it makes a completely new and wonderful meal for a future date. Enchiladas.
Now, these are not your authentic, corn tortilla, dipped-in-sauce enchiladas. Those will be coming later. These are the Americanized version, the easy ones. The very easy ones. The ones made from all that extra taco meat.
Don’t believe me? You will. Soon.
Just make an extra pound or so of taco meat with your tacos and spend 10 minutes while cleaning up taco night to prepare the enchiladas. Stick in the freezer for later. On that day you don’t feel like cooking. Because you don’t want to.
