I am asked so often if I cook every single night. The answer is always yes I cook at least 2 meals most days of the week. When you love to cook it’s not a problem. But if you learn to cook and experiment with left overs it makes cooking a meal no longer a chore. With the economics of today I am able to cut our living expenses by cooking our meals rather than eating out or buying processed and prepared meals from the market. I freeze almost anything that is left over as there’s always something I can do with it.
Here’s another Leftover Delight recipe using leftover Texas Chili.
Ingredients: yields 4 burritos
- about 2 cups of Texas Chili, (leftovers)
- about 2 cups re-fried beans or 1 small can
- 4 flour tortillas
- shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat your oven to 200.
In a skillet reheat the Texas Chili, making sure you have broken up all of the meat cubes. Heat the re-fried beans in a small saucepan and warm the flour tortillas to soften them in a dry skillet over medium heat. Spread a layer of re-fried beans in the middle of the tortillas and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese. On top of that spread a layer of the chili. Tuck 2 opposite ends of the tortilla inward and roll the tortilla from one end to the other to form a burrito. Spoon a little more of the chili over the rolled burrito and sprinkle with more cheese. Place the burritos on an oven-safe plate and put the plate in the oven to warm until the cheese starts to melt.
