Taco Tuesday Tortas

taco-tue-torta

My mom used to make me tortas with rice.  Tortas have a lot of different meanings to a lot of different people but to us, it was similar to an omelet that had garlic, onion, ground beef, pepper, and a little soy sauce.

After the last event I hosted where I made mini bell peppers stuffed with taco filling, I had quite a bit of taco filling leftover. I decided to make tortas with it the next day.  We enjoyed it so much that I now look forward to having leftovers from Taco Tuesday just so that I can make these tortas.

Ingredients:

  • ~6-7 eggs (this may change based on how much filling you have leftover
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • extra virgin olive oil (evoo) to coat the skillet
  • ~1-1.5c Leftover ground beef filling from Taco Tuesday

Directions:

  • Heat a cast iron skillet on low heat
  • While skillet is heating up, whisk eggs with salt and pepper
  • Add desired amount of beef to egg mixture and stir to combine
  • Once the skillet is hot, add evoo to coat the skillet
  • Add a small ladle size portion of the egg beef mixture to the hot oil
  • When the egg is brown and somewhat “flip-able,” flit and brown the other side
  • Remove and add to a paper towel lined plate to absorb the extra oil
  • Repeat and enjoy or store in the refrigerator
