I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to call this entry. It could have been called: “Meal prep gone wrong”,”Failure to weigh”, “Extra meal prepz?’, or “Too lazy to measure”. Either way the reality is that when I made pulled chicken last week, I made way more than I needed in order to make five or six meals. In seven ounce portions, I would have only needed to cook 35 to 40 ounces and I easily doubled that figure with the amount I cooked.
The Rubbermaid container that contained the extra chicken sat in refrigerator all week staring at me. I spent some time at work on Saturday thinking about what I could do with all the chicken because I knew I would be hungry when I got home. I couldn’t see going to the market like I usually do on Saturday nights and buying more food when I still had so much prepped in the fridge. I also didn’t want to eat the same old chicken and seasoned rice I had been eating since Tuesday. Well I still ended up at the market, but it was a light trip.
This idea will also work great for food left over from Christmas among other holidays.
-Can of Black beans
-Monterrey jack cheese (shredded)
-Whatever leftover meat you’d like to part with.
-A waffle iron (Unless you’re fancy and have a panini press).
Just use the waffle iron because it’ll add character. I promise.
The way I made it the macros add up to: 514 calories, 39 carbs, 18, fats, 51 protein (39c/18f/51p).
I chose to leave out the seasoned rice (macros didn’t fit).
I’m gonna call it…..
Grilled Stuffed Whatever You Got
- Lay out a tortilla on a microwave safe plate (good looking out) and spread two tablespoons of cheese on it.
- Warm up your waffle iron.
- Microwave the tortilla for one minute.
- Remove it from the microwave and measure out a 1/2 cup of the leftover meat and a 1/4 cup of black beans.
- Then load it up and roll it up (It’ll have just enough stuff in it).
- Carefully put it on your waffle iron. ^^Ugly rolling meh^^
- Wait a couple minutes (Maybe AMRAP some pushups?)
- Check it. It should have some nice waffle print on it.
- Enjoy it. Make some for your friends. Prep it up if you have enough leftovers or if you want to make leftovers of your leftovers.
