Leftovers never tasted so good!
Quick, easy … and so very versatile.
Change the cheese, change the fruit …you could even substitute leftover chicken for the pork ….
Pull it together with some Thai chill sauce … or some salsa
Or, if you have a friend like Elizabeth, you could use her Peach and Pepper Jelly to bring everything together in a flavourful way …
