The Never-Ending Dinner

May 8, 2008

No one seems to like leftovers. Poor lil guys. With a little creativity though, you can turn last night’s dinner into something completely new. This here isn’t so much a recipe as an idea- and one that turned out too good not to share. Yesterday’s spaghetti squash with marinara became tonight’s Mexican chili type thing (I’m really not feeling eloquent enough to come up with a better name). My photography skills kinda match my dish-naming abilities today, so you’ll just have to take my word that this dinner was fantastic!

Into the bowl went about 1/4 of a large spaghetti squash, 1/4 cup salsa, 1 cup prepared black bean soup, 1/2 cup veggie ground round, and some tortilla chips with sweet pepper relish on top. Microwave (sans garnishes) for 2-3 minutes, and dinner is done! I added a hearty shake of red pepper flakes because the black bean soup label lied and wasn’t spicy at all. I bet some sour cream or yogurt would also go great with this. The only problem is, I wasn’t able to finish my bowl and so now I have to think up a way to dress this up for lunch tomorrow.
