This is our second freezer-dinner this week, tonight’s excuse being that the work on our bathroom was finished today and I wanted to spend the afternoon cleaning up after the builders instead of cooking.

This originally started life as Mexican Bean Stew and had a lot more liquid in the final dish than tonight’s version, I reduced this down so that it was thicker and could be rolled up in corn tortillas with guacamole. It seems to me that this is key when dealing with leftovers: rather than treating them as something you eat when you can’t be bothered to cook, they can actually be turned into something interesting if you just put a little thought in. Tonight’s dinner was just as good, if not better than the original version thanks to the “fixings” we served with them.

Sadly, we’re out of leftovers now so tomorrow I’ll have to cook something from scratch, I may well make double though and freeze what we don’t eat.

    Those leftovers look excellent. Always good to have a supply in the freezer in case of emergency. My other half has been living off them for the past week as I’ve been ill and has come up with all sorts of inventive ‘reincarnations’!

    I pretty much always cook double of everything and freeze some. Always handy to have a couple of non-cooking days a week!
