Karl’s Leftover Chicken Fajita Tacos

I had made a chili chicken for Sunday’s dinner and had plenty of chicken to work with in making other meals. If the chicken is already cooked, tacos are a quick and easy weeknight meal. If you have not roasted a chicken, a deli chicken  makes a good substitute.

Karl’s Weekday Quick Beef Chili

While I like slow cooked chili with tender chunks of beef, I sometimes just want a quick meal for a weekday. While I have been known to simply use a brand name chili, sometimes I like to go just a step further. This may take a few more minutes than simply opening a can, but the flavor is worth the effort.

Karen’s Pear Chutney

Adapted from Joy of Cooking (1997)

My sister, Karen, moved to a new home in Port Townsend, WA and there is a pear orchard in the back. In our Christmas exchange this year, I gave her marmalade and she sent me the pear chutney she had made from her crop.  We ate it with an Indian dinner I had made and it went very well. I asked for the recipe to share.
