Would you use it?

We made tacos Monday night and have taco meat left over. I just realized it last night when hubby asked me to make taco salad tonight for dinner. It'll be 4 days old tonight , it's still good isn't it? It would all get eaten tonight since there isn't a whole lot left but would you use it?

  • With cooked meat, you've usually got between 7 and 14 days to use it before it gets iffy. You're safe. Unless you mean that you've left it out on the counter for four days. Then I wouldn't use it.

  • i dunno i'm weird about leftovers like if i made spaghetti i would skip one day then eat it again for lunch but four days is too long for me i think but it might not hurt you who knows ...

  • If it's been refrigerated the whole time, it's still good!
