For Mexican Leftovers, Make a Chip Wall

Simple Tip: For Mexican Leftovers, Make a Chip Wall

Whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant, I can't help but order too much food. Since I enjoy leftovers, I love to bring the extra tortillas, rice, beans, meat, and salsa home to eat later. However, what I don't love is soggy anything. To ensure that tortillas stay soft, I make a chip wall. You simply put wetter elements like salsa and refried beans on one side of a takeout container; then, place the items you don't want to get wet on the other side. Separate the two with a wall made of tortilla chips. The chips may get soggy, but I usually just discard them.

My "leftovers" at restaurants always go to my human garbage-disposal husband. He can outeat just about anyone I know.
