Had iceberg lettuce and canned water chestnuts on hand with these in mind but not yet made them.
The other ingredients weren’t a stretch as we have made these before and had the fresh ginger, hoisin sauce, chili paste and bean threads from previous recipes. My finicky kid loves these but was not happy that I had the water chestnuts finely chopped and intermixed with the ground beef. His added request was bean threads. We added in fresh basil leaves as a bonus we don’t often have in the refrigerator. Due to family differences each of the sauces have to be individually added so as to not include the sweetners or spiciness.
Taco Hot Dish
Needing to throw something together fast, pulled out two different cans of refritos (one with spice and one plain), and canned corn. In a baking dish, I layered these with chicken (leftover from a Costco broasted whole chicken), topped with salsa and cheddar cheese (one third rice cheddar cheese), and baked for 20-25 minutes. We had a few chips on the side and topped with fresh lettuce and tomatoes. Nothing special and no photos, but was a tasty meal and provided some left-overs.
