The rest of the beans I freeze in ziplock bags with each bag holding a premeasured amount of 1 1/2 cups (the approximate amount of 1 can of storebought beans). The next time a recipe calls for a can of beans, I can just use what I have in the freezer.
A few times I’ve used leftover, browned hamburger meat (in our house it’s always either venison or elk) seasoned however you like it. Use this as the bottom layer in a casserole dish, then spread with a few bags (or cans) of pinto beans, and top with cornbread batter and cheddar cheese. Bake it in the oven until the cornbread is done. It’s hearty and very easy.

Today I made a white sauce with green peppers and gravy, using the juices in the slow cooker and adding some milk and the leftover chicken pieces. We ate it on top of home made biscuits. I didn’t think the kids were that hungry, but there wasn’t anything left over!
