The perfect way to use leftover meat!



3 tablespoons olive oil

1 red onion, thinly sliced

1 poblano pepper, thinly sliced

Leftover roast or chicken, shredded

1 jar Roasted salsa verde

1 jar salsa, I used Pirate O’s Six Cannon Fire Roasted Salsa

1 packet taco seasoning

1 can black beans

Shredded cheddar cheese or Monterey jack

Flour tortillas

Scallions, lime wedges, jalapenos, and cilantro to garnish


Preheat oven to 375*

Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add the red onion and poblano pepper and

saute until they are tender and translucent. Add the roast, salsas, and taco seasoning

and stir until the seasoning has worked into the meat and the salsas are beginning to

simmer. Reduce heat and pour in the black beans and continue to simmer until

everything is heated through.

On a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, layer a flour tortilla, the meat mixture,

and a handful of cheese; repeat. Top with a flour tortilla and cheese.

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes uncovered, until bubbly and cheese has melted and started to

brown on top.

To serve, top with scallions and cilantro, and jalapenos and lime wedges on the side.
