Shut up already!

Thought I'd just say it for you!

Yes, this is yet another post mentioning that amazing beef brisket... No, I am really not doing this to tease anyone! Sorry. I just like to cook, so humor me...

I like cooking up huge chunks of meat like that brisket, because I love the fun with leftovers.. leftovers as leftovers are good as is, but I mean, why go through all the effort of cooking a large dish if you cannot experiment with some of it??

We had about 2 servings of the beef left. I warmed it up and sliced it into little shreds. Heated the oven to 400F - here's the recipe I came up with for baked beef enchiladas:

Saute onions, garlic and pepper in a small frying pan.
Melt 6-8oz of cream cheese into the veggie mix.
Add one can of green chilis
Stir in the leftover beef, with remaining juices

Grease a 13x9" baking dish

Warm up tortillas, and roll 3-4 tbsp of the meat mix in each.

Place in the baking dish, cover with enchilada sauce, and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.

Bake for 20-30 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Good as is, or serve with guacamole, salsa and sour cream.

Good for dinner last night - stretched 2 servings of meat into a meal for 4 with enough leftovers for one lunch. Mine. I offered to let Brad take it to work, but he did not want to carry it... too sad for him!

Ok, we made guac last week. And we make salsa on a regular basis. But where did you get sour cream? (Not that i've looked. It's probably on all the shelves and i haven't noticed. LOL) Now i'm hungry!! :)

At the commissary. But you know, I've had sour cream here in restaurants. It can't be impossible to find?!

Homemade guac and/or salsa is awesome! Mmmm! I could happily live on that (except for how much I love good meat... and bread... and other veggies... )
