So this is my first Works for Me Wednesday to participate in. There isn't anything absolutely like rocket science for my first works for me, but I will share what we do with leftover meat. If I fix a roast, boil a chicken, grill pork, or basically any meat (except for ham) and I have leftovers then we have rice bowls with the leftover meat. We usually have these at least once a week for lunch and everybody loves them.
The night before the planned overs I put on a pot of slow cooker dried pinto beans (you could use canned but I like fresh beans). Then when I'm ready to prepare the meal I cook a cup of rice in chicken broth or Better Than Bouillon. I reheat the leftover meat and put the bowls together. Rice on bottom, next beans, next meat, top with chopped tomatoes, sour cream and shredded cheese. YUMMY!!! That is what works for me (and if I can't do all this prep then I open a can of refried beans and slap everything in a tortilla!!!) Enjoy!
