I just made the most TASTEY beef tacos on Friday. The meat was tender, savory, and very delicious. My husband thought I’d been cooking it all day. But I have a little secret he doesn’t know…
I realize that in posting this, I will most likely blow my cover entirely but it is worth sharing for all of your convenience and taste buds! One of my favorite things about food storage is its help with the EVERYDAY emergencies (thank goodness because everyday emergencies happen far more often than earthly calamities). Friday is usually my cleaning day and I can get most of it done while my baby is taking her morning nap but on Friday she decided she only wanted short naps and for me to hold her so we had a great time cleaning the house together ALL day. The clock struck 5:30 and I knew my husband would be home soon and I had no dinner! (Sound familiar to anyone else?) I grabbed two cans of chunked roast beef from Costco and a can of green chilis and was on my way. Canned meat is the best for “quickie” meals.
All you have to do is saute your canned beef with juices (which will turn your chunks into shredded meat and make it taste like you’ve been slow cooking it all day) with some onions (I of course use the dehydrated onions) a can of green chilis of you want and some spices. You can use beef taco seasoning or I used some garlic salt and cumin. I served it with taco sized tortillas, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, green onions, salsa, and guacamole that I keep in the freezer. I served it with grapes, tortilla chips and salsa. You can also serve it with your dehydrated refried beans of course! Bon Apetite!
