Leftovers are great and while we both enjoy cooking, it’s nice when there’s extras for another meal, preferably NOT the next night.
Our recent pulled pork dinner was great as was the crockpot chicken stew two days later. We had invited friends to join us for both meals, but still had leftovers, we combined them for a different meal.
Both the pork and the chicken were already cooked; the pork was shredded and so we did the same for the chicken. This prep time was
relatively very easy.
Our new meal — pork and chicken burritos.
First, the oven was preheated to 375 degrees. Using a package of corn tortillas, Grenville added shredded pork in two and shredded chicken in another two, then rolled and folded both ends. Leftover sauce from the crockpot chicken was spread on the bottom of a baking dish and on top of the tortillas. This was all covered with
some a LOT of shredded cheddar cheese and oven-baked for 30 minutes. Coleslaw was leftover from another meal (finished in this one).
These were filling enough to only have one, so again leftovers for another meal, plus the extra tortillas made great breakfast wraps.
Do you have a favorite way to use certain leftovers ?
