When you have a fridge stock full of food and yet, can't make heads or tails of it... and dinnertime is knocking down the door... it's time to ask your girlfriends... what they got cookin'
Sorry - but I am interested in who does... and interested in some of those famous Tracy dishes I keep hearing about.

I have a very easy recipe:2 stalks celery1 bell pepper (any color)1/2 onion1/2 pound of meat or chickenOne can of mexican style stewed tomatoesSmall tin of diced green chilesOne can of kidney beansOne can of either white, navy, or black beans.Half a can of corn (optional)One can of chicken, veggie, or beef stock (whichever meat you choose)One packet of fajita seasoning (I like the one for chicken)1 tsp of chili powder, the best quality you can find1/2 tsp dried oreganopinch of sugar1 tbl Olive Oilsalt and pepper to tasteChop the celery, onion, and bell pepper. Heat oil in medium pot over medium heat and add the chopped veggies. Sprinkle with some of the fajita packet and a dash of salt, saute for 3-5 minutes. Add chopped chicken or meat/hamburger. Cook over medium high heat stirring occasionally for 3-5 minutes. It's ok if the meat/veggies stick a little, the brown bits on the bottom mean flavor! Add the tomatoes with their juices, pinch of sugar, the green chiles, and the can of stock. Stir the mixture with a spoon to incorporate any of the browned bits from the bottom. Sprinkle with about half of the fajita packet, the oregano, and chili powder. Simmer on medium heat for 15-20 minutes. In the meantime, open the cans of beans to drain and rinse the beans (reduces gas later!) Add the beans, corn, and check the seasonings for more salt, pepper or chili powder. Turn to low heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. Optionals:You may add a dash of taco sauce, hot sauce (like Tapatio,) or cayenne pepper if you like. A little cilantro or fresh parsley is nice as well. Serve with or without shredded cheddar and/or a dollop of sour cream.This is a quick chili that comes together in about 1/2 hour. It's even better the next day. You can make it vegetarian by omitting the meat and choosing a veggie stock. It's one of my favorites since the veggies are so fresh and the flavors are so bright. You can really use whatever vegetables you have on hand; sometimes I add carrots or zuccini. Increase the meat if you want. Sometimes I only use 1/2 a packet of fajita seasoning, sometimes the whole thing, so taste the chili along the way and make a decision.
