Taco Tuesday comes but once a week — but when you have some super-spicy and delicious taco meat left over, the day is truly a gift that keeps on giving. Let's be real; we could eat tacos every night of the week, so it seems silly to limit it to one measly meal.

And if you have something against leftovers, we swear you're still going to devour these recipes. They aren't just a copy of what you had on the first night, but instead turn the taco meat into something totally new.
