Leftover Rib Tacos

Labor Day is officially over and with it brings Fall, not wearing white and often leftover grilled meats! Yesterday to celebrate labor day, we grilled a bunch of ribs but when we were left with an entire rack and didn't feel like ribs again today, I knew I had to get creative. And the results were amazing and perfectly timed for Taco Tuesday...Leftover Rib Tacos!

  • 1 leftover rack of pork ribs
  • 3 bell peppers (try 1 yellow, 1 red and 1 green for color)
  • 1/2 large yellow onion
  • 1 cup cabbage
  • 1 cup cheese
  • 1/2 cup enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • Tortillas


  • First you need cooked ribs or other steak or pork cuts! These can be freshly grilled or left over! I cut rib meat off the bone and into bite sized pieces.
  • Next, cut onions and bell peppers into strips.
  • In a small skillet, sauté the vegetables with  salt, pepper and salsa until soft.
  • Heat a second skillet to high heat with oil and add chopped rib meat. Sauté for 5 minutes, until crispy and add enchilada sauce. Sauté on low with enchilada sauce for another 5-10 minutes (helps to soften the meat)
  • Warm tortillas and begin to layer ingredients - Add vegetables, followed by meat, cheese, cabbage and a drizzle of extra salsa or italian dressing for a kick.
  • Serve and enjoy!
