I have about half a pound of spiced cooked ground beef left over from a chili that I made last night. I don't want to throw it out. But neither do I know what to do with it. Any (clean) suggestions please.

You could always freeze it until the next time you want to make chili. That is what I do when I have some left over. That way when you want to make chili all you have to do it pull it out and defrost it and use it.

I think that feezing may be favourite. I am receiving so many suggestions that I wish that we weren't having chicken tonight. Many thanks.

Beef is the easiest meat to just throw into any dish. saute up some green peppers and onions or lettuce and tomatoes and get yourself some cheese and some soft flour tortillas and WHAM you have tacos or fajitas. Or cook up a box of macaroni and mix in two cans of tomato paste and some salt and pepper and you have beefaroni. But honestly when all else fails just turn it into sloppy joes :)

Yep I love it. Over here a sloppy joe is an ill fitting pullover. I wouldn't normally consider putting ground beef on it. But I am game for something different. What would your interpretation of a sloppy joe be please?

I would just go buy a can of manwhich sloppy joe sauce and mix it up and serve it on hamburger buns but if you really want to be creative since you have already seasoned your meat (I'm giving you the measurements for 1 lb. cooked beef) you would just add all this stuff below until it simmers then spoon onto buns and enjoy... 1 sm. onion, chopped fine 1 sm. green pepper, chopped fine 3/4 c. catsup 2 tbsp. sugar 1 tbsp. prepared mustard 1 tbsp. vinegar 1 tsp. salt

Thank you. Sounds like once I had done that I might well spill my Sloppy Joe down my Sloppy Joe. LOL.

Taco salad! In a casaroll dish: Tortia chips on the bottom Layer of cheese Layer of the meat Layer of lettuce Layer of tomato Layer of meat Layer of Tortia chips Layer of meat Layer of cheese Back on 350 for about 30 minutes. You can add things or take things away to your taste. I put a layer of sour cream, salsa, and jalipenos too.

I think that spaghetti sauce is coming in a close favourite. Thank you.

I find that if I have left overs it is great to add to sauces and such or to mix in with noodles. Ainge
