Written by COA Nutrition Team On June 7, 2019

Got leftover taco meat, but don’t want to eat the exact same thing again?

We got you covered! Make these corn bread type muffins with stuffed the meat in the middle.

They can be stored in the fridge and warmed up when you are ready to eat!



  • 1/2 cup corn meal
  • 1 ½ cup whole wheat flour, or multi grain flour
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup low fat milk



  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  3. Combine the liquid ingredients and mix in with the dry.
  4. Butter a muffin pan.
  5. Using a small cookie scooper, place one scoopful into muffin pan. Sprinkle with leftover taco meat, black beans, or salsa.
  6. Add one more scoop of the corn muffin mix to the top of the taco meat.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until batter is cooked all the way through.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Build time-saving habits

There are plenty of little habits you can build while cooking that will make you more efficient. For example, rinse prep dishes as you go to make washing them easier or move them into the dishwasher as you’re working. You can also create a scrap bag or bowl where you discard skins, odd bits, or anything else you might throw away while cooking – this way you don’t have to lose your flow walking over to the trash can. A huge time-saver: prep bowls. Measure out your ingredients beforehand and set them out in prep bowls. That way, once it’s time to use them, you can just grab the bowl and pour.
