What are your thoughts on leftovers?
I am perfectly happy with leftovers as-they-are for lunch (or even breakfast), but when it comes to dinner, I usually want things in a different form. Which is one of the great things about roast chicken – the leftovers are endlessly adaptable. Soups, pastas, enchiladas, sandwiches, you name it.
Last night, we went with tostadas.
Grilled tortillas, black beans (homemade this time and on hand, but canned just as often), spinach, a bit of cheese, tomatoes, avocados and my favorite chipotle-lime cream (with yogurt last night). Combined with some heated-until-crispy leftover shredded chicken.
So easy, fresh and so good – meals like these give leftovers a good name.
