I am not a big fan of left overs, years ago i wouldn’t touch left overs and now I terste them because I dont want to be wasteful

In order to make left overs more fun, I try to make a brand name dish, I redefine the leftovers

When you have tacos if you are like me, I could eat them left over for a week, crazy how much we have left over… but tacos are fun to eat left over(if I am being honest I would say tacos ate my favorite thing to eat left over)

Today I am going to share my recipe for enchiladas using our left over tacos

This is so yummy and definitely counts as comfort food for sure and you could fix this any season we are in, great now in the summer, would be just as good in the fall, winter, or spring!

  • Enchilada sauce 4 tablespoons if you dont have this but have salsa use this
  • Small tortillas 2-3 per person

  • Green onions
  • Cotija cheese

  • Warm up the meat, beans, rice and queso cheese

  • Top with 1 tablespoon of taco meat
  • Top with 1 tablepsoon rice
