I'm proud to say I came up with this non-recipe myself. I say non-recipe because it uses leftovers and requires no cooking what so ever. We all need more of those in our lives! Have you ever had potato flautas at a Mexican restaurant? Well, this is my take. You'll need...
*Good quality corn chips
*leftover mashed potatoes or your favorite frozen variety
*Your favorite canned Salsa Verde (editor's note: I used Ortega because I usually have it on hand for when I make Chicken Pasole soup. But it is not as good as homemade. Check out my labels for a green salsa recipe in, "A New Twist On Taco Night")
*Fresh Mexican cheese (It is kind of like feta)
That's it! Heat the chips and potatoes. Add the Salsa and cheese and you're done. Of course I just happen to have the best hot sauce in the world to shake on top. Marie Sharpe's. And serve with a side of beans. And to make this easy meal even better...
Make a Margarita Paw's style. Add 2 shots of your favorite Tequila to a glass. Then add 2 shots of Margarita mix. Add one shot of club soda and 1 tsp of Agave Syrup. Stir in the syrup and add ice. Now that's a meal!
P.S. The illustrated Kraft recipe contest is still on. Here's a link and wish me luck! http://theydrawandcook.com/recipes/maui-luau-sandwich-by-sharon-wagner
This recipe looks like one even I could handle! And it sure does make me hungry, sitting here in the morning before breakfast... the margaritas would be a little out of place at this time of the day, though. :-)
That would be a quick meal for leftovers...I will have to look for Marie Sharpe's hot sauce.
Good luck in the Kraft contest!
Oh yum- this one is a winner for sure!
Great idea for leftovers. I really hate cooking sometimes. Simple is best.
Yum! I'd like a few of those and a margarita to wash them down with!
