Okay, home late and it's hump day...Lord give me strength (and a drink)! Only a half of a small bottle of wine left, WHAT??? Hope is not lost, plenty of ice cold beer in the fridge...aaahh, life is good! So what kind of s!#t can I find in the freezer tonight to help me create a masterpiece? Looks like a frozen brick (I'd say a little over a pound or so) of hamburger meat will be the answer to tonight's dilemma! Now, after a nice big mug o' icy cold beer, lets check out the crap in the cabinet...hehehe, I said 'Crap in The Cabinet' but that's a whole new blog! This would be a great taco night but, no taco shells!!! What the hell, I have a few taco seasoning envelopes in the cupboard and I know I have all kinds of jazz to get rid of in fridge, so it's Skillet Taco night!! We have 3/4 jar of med salsa, a small piece of tomato, 1/2 of a medium onion (might as well use this stuff up before it rots & grows fuzz :) Got a little sharp shredded cheddar cheese left in the bag, I would have liked shredded lettuce but all I have is a bag of mixed salad greens so I'll shred that up and make due. A little light sour cream left and we are actually good to go! Another cold one and we begin...brown the hamburger in a med skillet (with the chopped onion or leave the onion raw for a topping, up to you). After the meat is browned, drain & add an envelope of taco seasoning with 2 or 3 tbls of water. Mix well and cover. Simmer meat for 5 to 10 mins on low. Drink some more beer (a shot of tequila about now would help greatly) and relax! Now, drop a few globs of salsa on top of the meat mixture and spread it evenly over the meat. Sprinkle cheese over the salsa and cover. Remove from heat and let it sit for a few mins until cheese is melted. Uncover and throw the lettuce on top of the cheese then sprinkle some chopped tomato over the top. Serve with a fat dollop of sour cream (if I had blk olives, I would use those also but too bad, so sad)! Dern Tasty again...ENJOY!!!
