Sometimes you just should drop what you are doing & get groceries.
Yet sometimes, you just don’t wanna!
Tonight was that night for me. Long day at work after a night of frustration & the last thing I wanted to do was grab take out or go shopping. I just wanted to cook something comforting & eat.
A quick scan of the pantry lead me to think tacos… but not tacos.
So I made Taco Lasagna! Yeah I have never tried it or heard of it either.
Basically I used what I had.
Starting with browning some ground turkey. Then I added some taco seasoning, a can of black beans & a can of corn.
Also added in some leftover rice from chinese take out.
I crushed up some broken taco shells & made a layer of them in a dish.
Next I layered on the turkey, rice, bean & corn mixture. Topped that with a layer of shredded cheddar. I repeated the crushed tacos, meat mix & added some salsa I found then the cheese…repeat til you reach the top. Make sure the cheese is the last layer on top.
Heated in a 350 degree oven to blend everything & allow the cheese to melt.
All on all not bad…
BUT I just kept thinking of what could make it better!
I find myself doing that a lot lately. I will be eating something & think of what I could add to really make it great.
For instance to me this would benefit with a chopped up serano or jalapeno pepper, some garlic, lime & a bit of cilantro.
Could be great with other cheese. Maybe some white queso instead of the cheddar. Perhaps a layer of refried beans instead of adding the black beans into the mix. Spinach added to the ground mix?
So many possibilities.
Just keeps me thinking of what could be.
