How to Ripen Avocados
Ripen avocados at room temperature. They will ripen faster if they are placed inside a brown paper bag along with a banana or an apple. Close the bag and leave at room temperature until the avocados are ripe.
Purchasing a fully-cooked rotisserie chicken at the supermarket is a quick way to obtain cooked chicken for recipes. Check to make sure the chicken is hot, not just warm, when you purchase it. If you are not using the chicken immediately, cut it into pieces and store in tightly covered containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
