3. My kids love having nachos. For some reason nachos just seem healthier to me when I use shredded beef instead of ground beef. Let me enjoy my fantasy of always feeding my kids the best and most healthy food.
On a baking sheet, lined with tin foil, layer your ingredients. Lots of tortilla chips, some ‘dry’ shredded beef (shake off the gravy), add a generous amount of cheese (I usually have cheddar handy), then place in a preheated 400 degree oven. Just check it after about 3-4 minutes. You just want the cheese all melty and then it’s ready to go. Top with some salsa, a dollop of sour cream, some chopped tomato and lettuce. You could also add some chopped olives or guacamole.
4. Tacos! Even easier than the nachos. I mix a little salsa into the shredded beef. Add the beef to the shell (hard or soft, your choice). Top with your favorite taco toppings. Lettuce, tomato, cheese, sour cream and maybe a little more salsa. I’m getting hungry again!
5. Enchiladas! Buy a couple of cans of Enchilada sauce. I usually just use a mild red sauce. Spread a thin layer on the bottom of your baking dish. Add a little enchilada sauce to your shredded beef. Place about 3-4 oz of meat in a soft tortilla shell and then roll it up. Place it seam side down in the dish. Continue until the dish is full. Add enough enchilada sauce until the enchiladas are generously covered in sauce. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes. You basically want the ingredients hot and the cheese to be melted and lightly brown. Well, that’s how I like it! Some people like the cheese just melted.
Hope this helps you with your meal planning! Truly, make the shredded beef on a Sunday and then make a couple of these recipes during the week. They are all easy to assemble and foolproof. And, most importantly, delicious! No complicated instructions or fancy ingredients. Just meals loved by all (including the kids)!
