Sunday Dinner Turns into Taco Tuesday: Yummy Pot Roast Tacos

In an effort to find something to do with left over pot roast these yummy tacos were born. In about 10 minutes, and the help of some fresh lime juice, onion, chili powder and cumin, Sunday’s pot roast was transformed into a spicy and fresh ‘steak’ taco creation.
Here’s what you will need:
leftover pot roast, chopped
one onion, chopped
juice and zest of one lime
1/2 TSP of cumin
1/2 TSP chili powder
pinch of salt

For serving:
Soft taco shells
chopped lettuce
chopped tomato or pico de gallo
shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream
chopped cilantro (optional)

Start by heating a pan coated in olive oil. When the pan is hot, add in your chopped steak and sprinkle with salt, cumin, and chili powder.
