No need to waste your leftovers when you can have this tasty BBQ Pork and Beans.

No need to waste your leftovers when you can have this tasty, budget friendly BBQ Pork and Beans.

No need to waste your leftovers when you can have this tasty BBQ Pork and Beans.

You shouldn't be friends with someone who tells you they hate leftovers. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

All jokes aside, tossing leftovers is no way to go through life. It is a huge waste of food, and I can't stand food waste. Cannot stand it.

Leftovers are delicious, and they are a great way to stretch your food budget.

Plus, leftovers can help save you time which is a huge deal to me.


No need to waste your leftovers when you can have this tasty BBQ Pork and Beans.

This week, I've been testing and photographing multiple recipes each day, and anything that can save me from wasting food + save me time is a recipe I can get behind.

I had leftover cooked pork tenderloin and found some barbeque sauce in the fridge, so I decided to make a little bbq pork.

Since I only had a little leftover pork, I needed something else to add a little substance to stretch the pork.

Beans it was since there was a can of pinto beans just waiting to be used in the pantry.

Dice some veggies, add to a pot, and simmer for a while. That's it.

It's great served over rice or on a bun or even in lettuce leaves for a lettuce wrap. Whatever works!
