Here we go again! Another week with limited supplies and trying to make the most of our freezer, pantry, and fridge stash of food. I ran across some charro beans I had made months ago and tucked away in the freezer. They were already seasoned with smoky bacon goodness.
Same with the cornbread…it was a smoky chipotle cornbread I made and froze a while back. I found the frozen skirt steak leftover from when we had fajitas.
When I saw the cocoa powder in the basket, a coffee rub came to mind since my ingredients were leaning toward a Mexican inspired dish. However, lessons learned upon first tasting the steak…I would have to add a few other ingredients to tame the flavor, and I ended up with an Asian-Mexican fusion dish lol! Here’s what happened.
