It’s true. According to the Albuquerque Journal, the 23-year-old texted his mother that he would drop by to eat. Ray’s mother told police she asked him not to go to the house. When she arrived, Ray entered through the back door, opened the fridge and ran off with a large pot of pozole.

“He opened the door and grabbed that big pot of pozole I had made for my kids. He knew I had made it,” said Ray’s mother to the Albuquerque Journal.

Ray’s mother, who has previously called police to remove Ray from her house, pressed charges against her son. Ray faces a felony for residential burglary. Ray’s mother also told the Albuquerque Journal, “He needs help.”

Let’s hope Ray and his mother can resolve their issues soon and get back to eating pozole together.

These Mexican-Inspired Dishes Created From Leftovers Will Make Your Mouth Water With Jealousy

Using up leftovers to create your next culinary Mexican food masterpiece just takes some thought, ingenuity and knowing what to do with salsa and queso. Get yourself a dish that can do both and look at these dishes for some inspiration for your next sit-down lunch or dinner. Seriously. After enjoying these Mexican-inspired leftover creations will change everything you know about food.

1. Tacos de Pozole

What do you do when it’s over 95 degrees outside and you cannot for the life of you eat another bite of your mama’s steaming pozole? Make the meat into tacos. You already love the soup and the meat. Why not give it new life?

2. Pollo Shakshuka

This Insta-Chef made an incredible meal thanks to some photo inspo. Pollo made with red salsa was transformed into a Tunisian-inspired shakshuka by way of adding some eggs and cotija cheese.

3. Rice And Bean Stuffed Peppers

You know when you head to a Mexican restaurant and your main dish comes with enough rice and beans to serve the whole table. Instead of chucking them directly into the trashcan, make another easy weeknight meal. Stuff some bell peppers and enjoy a delicious lunch.

4. Tamale Frito Pie

Our moms usually made a breakfast meal with leftover tamales by frying cut up pieces with a side of eggs. Instead, make it a meal by mixing her tamales with Fritos and melted cheese. Ok, we see you, leftovers.

5. Mexican Pasta

Did you go overboard on the BOGO sale at the grocery store for pasta and tomato sauce? Add some cotija cheese to your pasta and bake it like this catering company did. You can still make something delicioso on the cheap.

6. Fideo Pasta

If you’re like us you might have not added enough caldo to your sopa de fideo like abuela’s recipe calls for. No need to worry, fam. Use some of that drier (but still salvable) sopa de fideo to make a pasta dish. Sprinkle some of your go-to shredded cheese and top it with some scoops of avocado.

7. Grilled Veggie Tacos

We know we *should* be eating more vegetables, but sometimes it’s hard. No excuses when it comes to these veggie tacos. Grilled veggies from your meal prep can be sliced and diced with soft-boiled eggs and sprinkled with seasonings like black sesame to make some bomb tacos out of leftovers.

8. Pan Dulce Ice Cream Sandwiches

Did you go a little overboard with the pan dulce stand at the bakery? Use some of those pan dulce breads for another round of dessert. Inspired by Horchateria Rio Luna, cut up your bread and stuff with your favorite ice cream flavor for a sweet treat.

9. Salad Bowl

new Chipotle Chicken Salad with Honey Lime Mango Dressing will have you actually craving salad! The tender, juicy fiestalicious chicken, the harmony of crunchy veggies, salty sunflower seeds and crispy tortilla strips all sprinkled with buttery Monterrey Jack Cheese and doused in sweet, tangy and refreshing Honey Lime Mango Dressing!!! 😍 .

Last but not least, if you are stumped over what to do with all that marinated chicken or steak after your family’s carne asada, make some crunchy and zesty salad bowls with flavorful additions including pepitas, cotija cheese, and honey lime dressing.
