What's your favorite "round 2 recipe"?

Sometimes when I am making chicken for chicken alfredo or a casserole I make a little extra. I'll cut up little pieces and cook it in a pan quickly, then store it in the fridge. The next day it's great for a chicken wrap or to put on top of a salad.

this is a repost, but i did 3 rounds! -  bought a big package of ground turkey and browned it all up with some sauteed onions, garlic, green peppers and a little bit of "adobo" seasoning and then used it three ways during the week:


day 1: in lettuce wraps with some cheddar cheese (sort of like a philly cheese "turkey" lettuce wrap)


day 2: combined it with a mixture of eggs and a little milk, threw in a few thinly sliced potatoes, topped it with some cheddar cheese and baked it all to make a frittata


day 3: used it as a filling for empanadas!


if there was anything left for day 4 i would have combined it with some marinara sauce and made pasta!

Chicken nachos is my favorite Round 2 recipe.  I use leftover chicken (even Rotisserie chicken works great) and chop up some onions and fresh jalapenos, sautee that in a pan with some fresh squeezed lime juice.  Then I fill a dish or pan with tortilla chips and sprinkle the chicken mixture around (or mound it up in the center) and add shredded cheese over it all and stick it under the broiler for a couple of minutes until the cheese is melted.  Then I take it out and add sour cream, fresh cilantro, sometimes salsa, and another squeeze of lime juice.  It's one of my absolute favorite things to eat.

I don't really like leftovers so I try not to make more than what DH and I can eat for dinner one night and lunch the next. I do leftover meat as mince for tacos and quesadillas sometimes, but that's as far as I go.

Here's a picture of the chicken nachos I made last night.  This time I didn't already have chicken cooked, so I cubed up a couple of chicken breasts and cooked them with the onions and peppers.  And this time I didn't pour the stuff over the chips, I kept them separate because the last time I made it I almost burned the chips while the cheese was melting.  It's good either way, though!
