Table Talk » Cook With What You Have Challenge - Day 11 Taco Night

When I sorted through the refrigerator and pantry last week, I found an open box of taco shells, an open jar of tomato salsa, an open jar of salsa verde, a can of black olives, some cheddar cheese, onions, red bell peppers, an avocado, and scallions. If I added some ground beef from the freezer and bought lettuce and tomatoes, I had everything I needed for Taco Night.

I don't follow a recipe for tacos. Along with the meat, I saute chopped onion and red bell pepper. I added in an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce, the salsa verde, chili powder, and oregano. I usually add cumin too, but I'm out of it right now. We opted for taco salads, so after heating up the taco shells, I broke them up into bite size pieces and we built our taco salads with the taco meat, cheese, lettuce, olives, scallions, tomatoes, avocado, and salsa.

Tacos are a simple, but very satisfying meal.

Sorry about the lack of pictures. It's too hard to steady the camera and take a picture with only one good hand.
