left over fajitas7Hello my friends!

How was your weekend? Namely how was your Cinco de Mayo?!
I was feeling a little under the weather on Friday so I headed for the doctor, only to be told I had
bronchitis + a sinus infection.
But, I still did manage to hike in the woods under the bright spring sunshine with my dad, Andy, and the boys. (Don’t forget our crazy dogs too!)

We went out for Mexican with another couple friend and all of our kids. (A little margarita helped me not be embarassed at my 3 year old’s shenanigans!)
…and we had my good friend of 26 years (!) and her family over last night for my Skinny Baked Fajitas.
All in all, it was a good weekend, with a little r+r, a few laughs, and quality time with my family.

I hope yours was good too. I just made this kick ass really good Fajita Pizza with the fajitas leftovers….

Here’s What You Need:
1 flatbread or pizza crust (prepared)
1-2 Laughing Cow Queso Fresco and Chipotle wedges*
Left over  rice (optional)  -I used black beans and rice, but Spanish or Mexican rice works too
Left over fajitas*
Cheddar, shredded

Here’s What You Do:
Preheat the oven to 400. Spread the Laughing Cow over the bottom of the pizza or naan. Sprinkle some of your left over rice on top followed by the left over fajitas. (Don’t get carried away adding too many veggies so it doesn’t get soggy!) Add a very tiny dash of cheese and then bake for 8-10 minutes. Add a few sprinkles of cilantro for a great fresh flavor. Disfruta! *You can try this with refried beans too!

Kid Tip:
Cut the veggies and peppers into really small pieces and add the cheese on their side to “hide” most of them! 😉

Want left overs for breakfast? Try this Fajita Frittata!

Taco leftovers?!
You can also make a great quesadilla with leftover taco fixings.(Take a small tortilla and add your left over beans followed by the veggies and meat. Add a tiny handful of baby spinach cut into strips and then a dash of cheese. Top with another tortilla and then make like a traditional quesadilla or to save on fat, simply make it in the Panini maker for about 4 minutes.)
