What do you do when a recipe doesn't turn out?

So, this Sunday I made green rice, and...I really didn't like it. (Not a slam on the recipe--I didn't salt it enough, and I think maybe I just don't care for the taste/aroma of leeks, this being my first time eating them.) Still, it seemed like a terrible waste to throw out what amounted to nearly a week's worth of meals, so I started throwing some Vietnamese chili paste over it, since I'll eat pretty much anything with chili paste on it. Tonight, I tried some canned chipotles, and it was quite tasty--the smokiness kind of balances things out.

Now I'm curious: what things have you tried to doctor up food that you might otherwise not want to eat?
