Leftovers sandwich

Leftovers that can be turned into a sandwich are great. Greatness recently happened twice as follows:

Southwestern Open-faced Sandwich


  1. Corn and black bean mixture (~1:1), sauteed
  2. 1/4 avocado, diced
  3. ~1/2 tsp sriracha sauce (more or less to taste)
  4. Salt and pepper
  5. Cheese (I’ve done a slice of Havarti – just go with me on this one – or shredded marble jack, both were super yummy
  6. 1/2 tomato, sliced
  7. 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?

Do you have any favorites that make great sandwiches?
