So What Have You Made From Leftovers That Was As Good If Not Better Than The Original Dish?

So last night my sweet husband treated me to his famous Pork Verde, nice little chunks of perfectly cooked pork in savory green sauce. It was as tasty as ever and we even munched on the leftover pork and tortillas for lunch....come dinner time, (I was so feeling lazy) the pork and green sauce was gone...so what to have for dinner without having to go out?

I hit the kitchen, took a little juice glass and cut the tortillas in small rounds then deep fried them...while they were crisping up I mixed salt, pepper and the zest from the leftover limes together and sprinkled that over the warm chips, Yum...but what else? Looked in the fridge...two tablespoons of butter got tossed in a pan to melt, then it was sprinkled with two tablespoons of flour....oh yeah, a roux. Grated some fantastic Comte and heated up a cup of milk with 1/2 cup of chicken stock and slowly added that to the roux while I fried up more chips. Smashed up 3 cloves of garlic and tossed that in with the sauce and let it simmer for a bit before adding the Comte cheese and a good squirt of chili sauce.....best "Nachos" we have ever had! So Hounds what have you made from leftovers that was as good....if not better than the dish that lent its parts?
