Halloween and fall Box Tops submissions kept me way busier than I planned last week. Postings this week will be much more consistent. Thanks for your patience.
Remember when we roasted that Acorn Squash and I promised to share how I use the leftovers? Well, it took longer than a week. In fact, it’s been almost 2 weeks since I shared that recipe. Better late than never.
Take your leftover squash, remove the skins and put it in the blender with some cumin, chile powder, cinnamon, salt and water. Puree until smooth and creamy.
Now, I’m sure you could eat this puree just like this, but why do that when you can make it even more delicious. If you’ve got some leftover roasted meat (pork, beef or chicken will all work just fine), shred it up and put it in a skillet with hot oil. Fry until the edges are crispy and golden (this is beef, in case you’re wondering).
Then, layer some meat, sauce and cheese (or cheese stuffed green chile) on a steamed corn tortilla and enjoy a fantastic fall taco.
