Steak Tacos

We often make tacos when we have leftover meat.  We just season, reheat and build the tacos.  Unless you have a good source for corn tortillas, it’s definitely worthwhile to make your own.

Crab Louie Tacos

These tacos are based on the San Francisco classic, Crab Louie Salad.  I wanted to use blue corn flour to add some color to the dish, but didn’t order it in time from the Internet, so I added my own coloring.  These tacos are great for any meal — brunch, lunch, or dinner.

Walnut Cabbage Cups

Adapted from Earth Eats

I heard this recipe on an Earth Eats podcast, a great weekly public radio program based in Indiana, which focuses on healthy, local eating.  The recipe is meant to be raw and vegan, but raw didn’t matter to me, so I went ahead and toasted the walnuts.  Earth Eats calls the recipe Walnut Tacos, but to me it is more like a lettuce cup, or in this case, cabbage cup.  It’s a great meat alternative for a taco, but my cabbage overpowered the flavor of the filling a bit.  Maybe I’ll try it in a corn tortilla next time, since I don’t mind my food cooked.

Smoked Salmon Tacos

This is a twist on a bagel with lox.  I used leftover homemade smoked salmon, corn tortillas, and crème fresh to make breakfast tacos.  Then I topped them with red onion and caper salsa and chopped chives.  You could also use lox, rather than homemade smoked salmon for the tacos if you wish.  The recipe is easy to double or triple if you plan to have company.  Serve it with some orange juice and a side of fruit for a complete breakfast.

A new lunch and dinner meal plan for one week, for two people.  If you are cooking for more you can easily double the ingredients/recipes.   Leftovers are utilized for lunch.  The chicken leftovers cooked on Sunday are used in two other recipes later in the week, so make sure to portion it out.  Links to the recipes are included.
