I usually end up with left over beans and left over rice during the week. I usually make a pot of chili beans each week and end up with a cup or two left over. I also usually make a meal with chicken and rice or pot stickers and rice and end up with left over rice.
One way I like to use these leftovers is to create cheesy bean and rice tacos for lunch. These sandwiches go together so fast because all of the main cooking is done. All I need to do is reheat the leftovers, assemble them into a tortilla, and add some fresh veggies and fresh salsa on top.
Optional: Add diced apples or other fruits or veggies for various flavors.
This meal is packed with nutrition and full of flavor and textures.
I like to serve it with a side of tortilla chips and cheese sauce for even more delicious flavors and textures.
This meal is a family favorite at our house. Hope you will give it a try too.
