This recipe serves 6 and is a great way to use up leftover cooked chicken.
3 boneless chicken breasts cooked and sliced
2 caramelized onions (recipe follows)
1 cup roasted Corn Salsa (recipe follows)
1 cup shredded lettuce or chopped fresh cilantro
Spread tortillas with BBQ sauce top with chicken, onion, salsa and cilantro (or lettuce).
Wrap up and cut in half.
To caramelize onions...place cut onions in a heavy skillet and saute in oil until translucent.
Add 1 tbsp of brown sugar and 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar per onion and cook on low heat for another 15-20 minutes until syrupy looking. Season with salt and pepper.
2 cups frozen corn
1 cup roasted red pepper diced
1/2 cup red onion diced
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
juice and zest of 2 limes
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
In a baking dish toss corn in olive oil and brown sugar. Roast at 350 degrees until caramelized, about 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and add remaining ingredients. Mix well, place in a bowl, cover and put into the fridge.
Great with fish especially halibut.

If you have been following my blog for some time you might remember that on occasion I dabble in acrylics...
roses are my muse and when inspired I find myself standing at the easel with a brush in hand waiting to see where it will take me.
Oddly I have not felt inspired to paint since retiring last year.
Last week I had an overpowering urge, almost an urgent voice beckoning me to paint something.
I had a full list of things on my "to do" list but the insistent voice would not be silenced.
I did as I was told.
I have had this navy and white striped dress for over a year and have not yet worn it.
I now know why!
I thought when I bought it that it looked OK but it is actually a very unflattering dress.
It's very "mumsy" and it makes me look wider than a barge!
It will be donated next time I pass by the WIN thrift shop.
Do you ever make mistakes when it comes to clothing purchases?
I've been living in this Gilmour of Vancouver Bamboo dress and keeping cool in our recent heat wave.
Called a ballet dress, it is available in a variety of colours but I much prefer it in the black.
I found a picture of the Eiffel Tower and Mr. HB hung it downstairs to inspire me...
I've a weekend of boat photos to share with you
but there is a mountain of laundry that needs to be tended to before I can sit down and upload them all.
Until next time...
Be Well and Be Kind.
