Taco Two Ways: Chickpea Curry and Shredded Beef



I'm always at a loss as to what to do with leftovers in my house. My husband packs his lunch to work and most days that entails a frozen meal of some sort, because it's the easiest to transport. I try to eat as many leftovers as I can the next day, but I am often still left with a freezer full of past meals and no idea what to do with them. Recently my husband came up with a good solution for leftover chickpea curry and shredded beef: he made tacos.

For the curry tacos he used corn tortillas, placing Bengali chutney on one side, topped it with the leftover chickpea curry, yogurt and cilantro. The shredded beef taco consisted of the beef, green salsa, shredded Mexican cheese and topped with cilantro. Alternating the two tacos while eating cut down on the spicy flavor of the chickpea curry taco. It was a great way to use leftovers in a new way!

  9. What a fantastic idea!! Have you tried it with soup chicken? After I make chicken soup I take the chicken and put a bit of bbq sauce - warm it in a deep pan, then put it in tortillas or tacos!

    BTW, thanks for stopping by thenewglasers.com - I had no idea others loved freeze dried foods like me!
