According to Danny Trejo, Fried Chicken Belongs in Your Quesadilla

You might know him from movies like Machete and Bad Ass, but these days, you’re just as likely to find Danny Trejo in the kitchen of one of his LA restaurants as on a movie set. In fact, it was at one of these restaurants—Trejo’s Tacos in Santa Monica, California, to be precise—that the actor, cookbook author, and restaurateur walked listeners through his method for making Pollo Frito Quesadillas on the latest episode of Food52’s podcast, Play Me a Recipe. Described by Trejo as “mouthwatering,” these quesadillas aren’t your average after-school snack—they come stuffed with super-crispy fried chicken, slaw made from green cabbage and chipotle crema, fresh chiles, and cheese.

Here’s what we learned cooking with Danny Trejo:

What to Do With Alllll That Leftover Brisket

A good meal makes for great leftovers. Sure, a sit-down Thanksgiving dinner is delicious, but what I really look forward to is a late-night, second piece of pecan pie and/or a breakfast sandwich layered with buttermilk biscuits, sliced roast turkey, cornbread stuffing, shredded Brussels sprouts, and cranberry sauce. If I manage to not completely inhale penne alla vodka for dinner from the hole-in-the-wall Italian restaurant near my apartment, I will count down the hours until it is socially acceptable to reheat and inhale the leftovers. That’s because leftovers are delicious, and leftover beef brisket is no exception.

The tricky thing with leftover meat—whether it’s brisket or beef tenderloin or roast chicken—is that it’s always at risk of drying out when reheated. Not to be dramatic, but there’s nothing worse than spending half a day looking forward to leftovers only to burn or overcook them. We’ll walk you through the best way to reheat brisket so it stays juicy, but we’ll also share some of our go-to leftover brisket recipes. As a note, not all of these ideas for repurposing leftover brisket are kosher, but they are all delicious. Feel free to make tweaks according to any dietary restrictions that you may follow.

Thanksgiving is over. You’ve packed up all the leftovers you couldn’t eat or give away, and now the second marathon begins: how to turn it all into something you want to eat again. If you’ve roasted a turkey (or chicken) before, odds are you know to save that carcass to use as the base for stock.

But when it comes to the most flavorful stock, the kind that you’d be happy to sip on straight when you just can’t get it up to make soup, there’s one thing you simply must do. Before making stock, you’ll need to roast the turkey carcass.

We’re a little obsessed with eggs around here. Okay, a lot. We like eggs for breakfast and dinner. (Honestly, we'll put an egg on almost any meal.) We’ve talked about how to fry, bake, boil, and poach them. We've covered how to separate eggs and how to temper them. Together we’ve learned about the best way to crack an egg, what to do with extra egg yolks, and picked up tips for baking with smaller (or larger) eggs. Now we need to talk about what to do with extra egg whites.

Recently, our community member Undeniably Rachael made a recipe calling for nine egg yolks, and she’s wondering what to do with all of those extra egg whites.

As a single person who loves to cook, there are many a week where I eat the same dish over and over (and over) again. But as much as I love leftovers (especially leftover potatoes), I also love variety. To balance affordability and flavor fatigue, I turn to dishes that transform into entirely new meals with just a few extra ingredients.

I hardly need to tell you, but hearty, humble potatoes are leftover superstars. From mashed to baked, roasted to boiled, potatoes transition into solid foundations for salads, soups, patties, and casseroles. With a little bit of planning, potatoes can fill you up all week long. Here are some of my favorite ways to reuse spuds.
