Leftover beef stew

I made a huge ol' pot of beef stew the other night and still have a ton leftover. Aside from freezing it, what else can I do with the leftovers to get another meal out of it? My husband and I have already had it twice this week for dinner and I would like to reinvent it somehow if I can...

  1. Pot pies, pasties, shepherd's pie?

    1. Burritos . . . add some cumin and oregano to the broth, thicken a little if necessary, throw in some slices of canned green chiles, and roll up in flour tortillas. I'd get rid of any big chunks of celery first, and you wouldn't want to include too much carrot, but potatoes would be fine.

        1. This made sound obvious, but you can also dilute it a bit and enjoy it as soup as an appetizer before dinner, or for lunch.

          1. I saw a recipe once that used leftover beef stew added into to a homemade tomato sauce recipe, to make a sort of ragu... that was then served over pasta. (Of course, if there are potatoes in the stew, I'm not sure it would be the best combination)
