Mexican Feast Take 2!

Mexican Feast Take 2!
Olivia can morph leftovers into the most unique and wonderful things better than anybody I know.  Here are some fine examples of that with the previously posted Mexican feast she made!  This is just plain wonderful!

This dinner idea uses the left overs from the Mexican Feast recipes posted recently on the blog!

Saute the left over green onions, chopped jalapenos, and cilantro in a sauce pan with about a tablespoon of olive oil.  Once the ingredients are softened, add the shredded beef.

Spoon two tablespoons of the meat mixture inside of tortillas and top with the left over cheese.

Roll the enchiladas up and place in a baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

Hopefully you saved the cooking broth that your roast cooked in.  Gently simmer the spiced broth in a sauce pan over medium high heat until it has reduced by half.  Stir in a small can of tomato paste and let it reduce a bit more.  This creates a very simple enchilada sauce!  Poor this over the enchiladas and top with more shredded cheese.  

This left overs are quite yummy!
