Easiest freezer meal ever!! I froze my beef brisket tacos in one container and zucchini chimichurri in separate containers (recipe listed in my blog). Then when I needed a meal I took them out!

Repurposed Beef Brisket Zucchini with Chimichurri Nachos:
Beef brisket tacos
Zucchini chimichurri
Fat free plain Greek yogurt
Sriracha
Organic blue corn tortilla chips
Pineapple salsa
Mixed Mexican cheese
Sharp cheddar cheese

I used my toaster oven pan. You could use a oven pan. Warm up brisket in microwave. Preheat broiler on high. Line pan with tortilla chips. Top with sriracha and pineapple salsa. Once brisket is warm, use a fork and sprinkle on top of Nachos. Lightly sprinkle the cheeses on top. Put in broiler to heat up.

In a bowl put a few spoonfuls of yogurt. Drop in your leftover zucchini chimichurri (it gets juicy from being frozen). And mix together. Once the cheese is melted, take out and top with chimichurri yogurt mixture. Enjoy!

TURKEY MEATBALLS:

1 pound ground lean turkey
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 tablespoons chopped red onion
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil

Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl, combined all ingredient (mix well, the ground turkey seems to be sticky), roll into 1″ balls and put onto a greased cooking sheet. Bake for 18 minutes.

Serve with spaghetti sauce (I normally make my but, this time I didn’t). When I was heating up the sauce, I added a little garlic olive oil (recipe below). Top whole wheat noodles with sauce, meatballs (unless you’re like me and like to cut them on the side), fresh basil, and parmesan. Enjoy!
