Left-over Nacho Migas

Our friends made the most amazing smoked pork nachos to munch on while watching the Seahawks game… it was so tasty, I’m amazed we had left overs. They were too delicious to toss so we wrapped up them in foil to make migas for breakfast. This was my first attempt and it turned out great. In fact, I will probably make too much nachos for now own just knowing we can have migas in the morning! Again, this is one of those recipes that...

Crab Pot Chowder

What do I do IF I have any leftovers from a crab boil?  Make chowder, of course! Here's my recipe for tonight's chowder: Chop left over andoullie (or other sausage that you used in the boil) and saute in butter in a large pot.  I added some mushrooms that I had hanging around in my fridge along with one sweet onion (diced).  The onion was not from the boil – although I did salvage some onion and garlic....

What to do with leftover tomato paste

I use tomato paste and canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce quite often with my cooking.  However recipes that I use rarely call for using an entire can (even the small cans).  I just hate wasting food…so I’ve started freezing what I don’t use in the recipe (paste/chilies).  I just dump it in a freezer bag and when my next recipe calls for that ingredient, I simply cut off a chunk of how ever much I need.
