Taco Tuesday Leftovers Just Got Better


So last night was taco Tuesday in your house, but today you can’t think about eating another taco. So what do you do with all of the leftover taco meat? Make a Grilled Taco Panini. This easy dinner idea is packed full of flavor and so good. 

I came up with this recipe a few months ago when we were just sick and tired of eating tacos. We had a lot of leftover meat so I started thinking about easy dinner recipes that I could make with the taco meat. Thus the Grilled Taco Panini was created. It was such a hit, now every time we make tacos the next day is always Grilled Taco Panini night in our house. I paired thick Texas toast with creamy white cheddar cheese, seasoned taco ground beef and a pinch of parsley. I’m talking about a flavor-packed sandwich like you’ve never tasted before. 

Go ahead and turn your next taco Tuesday leftovers into delicious Grilled Taco Panini’s your whole family will love.
