Let me start by asking how many of you like leftovers? I don’t, especially since it’s just the two of us at home. We rarely eat out on weeknights and we always bring our lunches from home, so most of the time, I have to make sure we have enough food for dinner and lunch the next day. What about leftovers ingredients? That’s actually where the fun kicks in, I mean in preparing the menus.
This happened two weeks ago, right after I prepared the Fiery Cajun Shrimp Tacos for National Taco Day. Have you tried it yet? Go get the recipe here so you won’t miss the heat. I bought a big bag of tortillas, a bag of 50 to be exact, because that’s the smallest size I could find. I was having hard times deciding what to make and thought of combining some ingredients I have at home. It’s “declutter and clean out your refrigerator” kind of day when this idea pop out. The result was outstanding, especially when Frederick confirmed that he would have this for lunch.
Taco Tortillas Pizza
- 2 hot links, cut into cubes
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 3 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
- 5 tortillas
- 2 cups shredded cheese (I use 4-blend cheese and mozarella)
- 1/2 package of Trader Joe’s taco seasoning
- Lime, for garnish
- Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 12-inch pizza pan with no-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
- Cook hot links, onion and garlic in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until sausage is browned (5 to 7 minutes); drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix; set aside.
- To assemble, place 1 tortilla on 12-inch pizza pan; spread the sausage mixture and 1/2 cup cheese. Place 1 tortilla on top and repeat layers of 2 more tortillas by adding sausage mixture and cheese.
- Place last tortillas and remaining cheese and bake for 20 minutes.
- Let stand 10 minutes before cutting into wedges with serrated knife. Garnish with lime and cilantro.

When I first started blogging, I didn’t realize it’s be so much fun. I get a chance to meet new friends, try new recipes, be part of a group, and so much more. It’s so addicting! One of my favorites is this #SundaySupper that we’re celebrating its first birthday this week, which also means we’re making some of our favorite Sunday Supper recipes from the past year. Believe me, there are loads of recipes that I want to try. I wish I could just stay at home and made them all.
So, I finally decided to start with this one, which I found the recipe on Sunday Supper site. The original recipe uses shrimp as the main ingredients; however since Frederick is allergic to shrimp, I substituted shrimp with chicken. It’s definitely something you don’t want to miss. Happy Birthday Sunday Supper! Thanks for making my kitchen adventures flavorful!
