Come home late from chores & such, combine the tailings of the dark meat of a roast chicken, home-canned tomatoes, salsa, taco mix, and grated cheese. Layer the bottom with more tomatoes and a bit of salsa. Line corn tortillas with a bit of sour cream, then fill with the mix, nestling them in the pan. Cover with a bit more of the same. Bake until hot and serve with rice cooked in chicken broth and mixed with steamed corn.

Serve it, take one bite and realize that it tastes more like vinegar than anything else. Toss it and wonder where you went wrong. Fix a plate of sliced chicken, some rice and corn, and top it all with some leftover gravy.

Sometimes, leftovers really are the only option.
