When I make Vegan Oil-Free Lentil Tacos, I always make extra of everything, so we can have lunches the next day. Since I already baked potatoes in the crockpot (the way I like them best), I had baked potatoes prepped, as well as lentil taco meat, cut tomatoes, chopped lettuce, onions, and some salsa. So, making Taco Tuesday Skinny Potato Tacos Recipe is easy!
Quick and easy leftovers become a completely different lunch:
Although I always make leftovers for lunch, Taco Tuesday Skinny Potato Tacos take 5 minutes to prepare. First, I simply reheat an already cooked potato and the lentil taco meat, top with my pre-cut veggie toppings, a little fresh salsa, and you have a skinny potato taco.
And, the possibilities are endless; add guacamole or Skinny Girl Vegan Sour Cream. Next, instead of taco meat, fill your potato with Crockpot Three-Bean Mega Veggie Chili, Skinny Nacho “Cheese” Sauce, or both!
Similarly, stuff a potato with Vegan “Adult” Sloppy Joes or pack it full of sautéed veggies. As a result, the potato is the perfect bowl to hold your favorite leftovers.
For those of you who take your lunch to work and eat it later, just pack your skinny potato, and your lentil taco meat in one container, and the veggies in another container. Then, you can reheat your potato and lentils together and top with your cold vegetables.
If you struggle with meal prep or even thinking of an easy lunch, this Taco Tuesday Skinny Potato Tacos Recipe is simple and easy!
Directions for the crockpot and oven-baked potato tacos:
Along with a unique way to bake potatoes in the crockpot, I provided directions for perfectly baked potatoes in the oven as well.
Leftovers don’t have to be boring, for instance, if you put a little creativity behind it. And, if you enjoy this quick recipe, you will love my Lentil and Tahini Twice Baked Potatoes.
So, if you love potatoes as I do, make a bunch of potatoes in advance, and then use them for multiple purposes during the week.
