The last few months of food preparation have been difficult since I have very limited refrigerator/freezer space (4 girls, 1 fridge) & don't want to spend lots of time cooking. Typically, I have a few goals for meal planning.
- Have a food variety
- Stay economical
- Don't waste food
About a month ago, I was seriously craving burritos, so I bought a package of tortillas. Without thinking, I picked up a package of 20 tortillas. Heh, not the best idea ever. I have learned many ways to use tortillas. Also, freezing tortillas works well but remember to pre-separate them before putting them in a freezer bag.
Refried beans, ground meat flavored with taco seasoning, leftover veggies, whatever else might be in the fridge that would taste good in a burrito
As needed, dump ingredients in a tortilla & warm up in the microwave. Top with salsa!
Fake-adillas (cause I don't eat cheese)
Refried beans, lunch meat, leftover veggies
Make it like a quesadilla. Top with salsa!
Small portion of sprouts, carrots, whatever veggies from the grocery store salad bar
Microwave the chicken & tortilla if you want. Add veggies & ranch.
Thai Chicken Wraps
Veggies from the salad bar
Peanut sauce- In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup peanut butter, 3 tablespoons soy sauce, 3 tablespoons water, 2 tablespoons cooking out, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, & ginger if you like it. Heat until sugar is dissolved, stirring frequently. (it's seriously good)
Assemble like a wrap.
Spread butter/margarine on a tortilla. Sprinkle on white sugar or Dutch chocolate sprinkles, roll up & enjoy.
Any other good ways to use tortillas?
