Pot Roast leftover idea #2 comes from my Mother-in-Law. I feel in love with it the first time she made it, so I
demanded asked for the recipe. I have no idea where she got it, but I do know that it was meant to be used on an entire roast. I’ve halved it so that it works with my leftover shredded roast.
I also end up making this dish to use up leftover unfried beans and my homemade salsa. It is true leftover meal…using up all sorts of odds and ends. One note of caution, make sure you leave a cup or two of meat from this meal for the next leftover idea…coming Friday!
