German One Night, Mexican Another

I love it when I can recreate from my leftovers, making something completely different than what I had before. I do that as much as I can. It’s become a fun little game for me. How can I creatively recreate it this time?

The other day when I made my German pork with red cabbage and apples, Still Cooking German I had enough leftover to recreate with them again. I didn’t have any more pork chops left, but that was OK. I totally recreated them into something completely different with just a few minor adjustments here and there. I went from this

to this in a matter of minutes.

I transformed a very traditional German meal and turned it into Mexican street tacos. We eat tacos like this all the time when we are down in Cozumel and/or the Mexican Riviera in general. They are oh so good.

We had some pulled pork in the freezer that I doctored up with some Mexican spices, onions and garlic, and them added some rice and corn and pan-fried corn tortillas to compete the meal.

With a wave of my magic wooden spoon, we had Mexican street tacos in an instant. !Delicioso!

Larry added cheese and sour cream to his. I would have added avocado to mine too if I had it, but this was kind of a spur of the moment meal, and I didn’t have any at the time. Oh well. Next time.

Sometimes the only thing you need to make a good, easy, quick meal is a little elbow grease and a lot of creativity. As I always say, play with your food. You just never know what you can create when you put your mind to it. πŸ™‚

Have a great day Everyone. Stay safe, stay well and stay warm, especially if you are in cold areas like I am. ‘Til next time.
