You gotta try using your leftover taco meat in an enchilada omelet!

Eggs are amazing food, so versatile, cheap, and yummy! Not to mention, extremely nutritious and beneficial to our health.

I stumbled across this use of eggs when I was trying to figure out what to do with some leftover taco meat. I’m always determined to use up as many leftovers as possible, I hate wasting food. Especially when it’s expensive grass-fed beef!

I tried stuffing it into an omelet and voila, the Omelet a la Enchilada was born. A yummy taco style omelet. Any leftover taco stuffing works great in this recipe. Try it with leftover carnitas, green chili beef or pork, barbacoa, etc. Perfect every time!
