Although the girls and I are not real big on leftovers I’ve gotten pretty good at refurbishing them to make it appetizing the second time around.
Last night we had baked chicken thighs and a Southwest style side of black beans, corn, red Bell pepper, purple onion, tomato and jalapeno.
I had 4 thighs which I diced up (skin also) and added to the 3-4 cups of leftover side.
Tonight I wrapped up the leftovers with a little pepper jack cheese and some fun flavored tortillas and baked em until crispy on the outside and hot in the middle. 400° convection for 20 minutes. A little sour cream to cool the heat and it’s a perfect dinner or stick em in the freezer for another day.
The nutrition label is only an approx because I’m not in the habit of using measuring cups. I also didn’t include the tortillas because while I used some fun spinach and tomato flavored tortillas (210 calories a wrap) you might use a different variety.
- 4 baked chicken thighs and skin
- 1 cup black beans
- 1 cup of corn
- 1 large red bell pepper
- 1 large purple onion
- 1 large tomato
- 1 jalapeno
- 1 garlic cloves
- ~2tbsp butter
- Salt n pepper
- 6-7 slices pepper jack cheese
Everything but the chicken was diced and sauteed in a pan with a little butter.
The flavors really improve after sitting in the fridge overnight.
Wrap and bake 400° ~20 minutes.
