Busy latter half of the week, so making a couple of meals at once is not a bad thing – makes things a bit easier for the kids. We have a book called Love the Leftovers from Murdoch Books which aims to transform leftovers from one meal into a new meal the next day, ie tandoori roast chicken becomes chicken biryani or persian beef with lentils and spinach becomes beef, pumpkin and pea hot pies. As a concept it has come merit.
I made tex mex chicken and beans. Chicken mince, onions, chopped tomatoes, chicken stock and red kidney beans flavoured with tomato paste, cumin, chilli, garlic, cayenne pepper and a touch of sugar. On the side a salsa of tomato, onion, spring onion, coriander and lime juice and some chopped jalopenos. I usually go a bit easy on the quantities of heat in dishes like this and this could have done with a bit more. If I cook this again, I will use teh quantities as advertised.
Tonight the kids will be using the leftovers to make enchiladas. See you in a few days.
Update: Apparently this is how the enchiladas turned out.
