Leftovers that can be turned into a sandwich are great. Greatness recently happened twice as follows:
Southwestern Open-faced Sandwich
- Corn and black bean mixture (~1:1), sauteed
- 1/4 avocado, diced
- ~1/2 tsp sriracha sauce (more or less to taste)
- Salt and pepper
- Cheese (I’ve done a slice of Havarti – just go with me on this one – or shredded marble jack, both were super yummy
- 1/2 tomato, sliced
- Slice of bread
Combine items 1-5 (or 1-4 if using sliced cheese) and mix
Spoon mixture onto bread and press/smoosh to stay (if using sliced cheese put cheese on first)
Layer the tomato on top
Toast over low heat for ~5 min until toast is crispy, cheese is melted and toppings are warmed through
Remove from heat and smother in salsa
What are your favorite leftovers?
