Yum! What to do with that left over taco meat…

Have you ever had a ton of left over taco meat and couldn’t figure out what to do with it?  Well instead of just making a salad, what about using a portabella mushroom cap?  Dan and I had a ton of left over taco meat after taco night.  I was sick of making a taco salad with it and I had mushroom caps that needed to be used.  So, I decided to make stuffed portabella caps.  I used a Chili Lime grilling sauce from Target to marinate the caps.  I then baked the caps at 425 degrees for about 15-20 mins on a cookie tray.  After removing the caps from the oven I spooned the left over taco meat into each cap, covered the meat in shredded cheddar cheese, and baked them for another 5 minutes.  When they were finished, to used the left over taco sauce and squeezed this on the tops of the stuffed caps.  I made a spinach salad with corn and bean salsa and mashed avocado.  It was a very tasty combination.  Next time you feel lost staring at that left over taco meat… try it with a portabella cap!
