Double The Recipe For Lunch Leftovers

If you have a small army of hungry family members double the recipe. Store in a Tupperware or similar air tight container to maximize the flavor in each single serve of lunch leftovers. Just toss the single serve Tupperware of yum in a thermal insulated lunch tote or box along with a mini bag of crisp nacho Chips to add just before eating. Plastic wrap works well if a store and go container is not available to save your Dorito Salad left overs in your fridge not recommended for travel however.
