I don't have any recipes, but standard instructions for canning is to
follow the pressure/time specification for the item that takes the longest
when done individually. Canning prepared dishes can be a tricky business.
I would recommend trying dehydrating the dishes you are interested in. I
have a couple friends who dehydrate chilie, stew, pasta and other prepared
dishes with (they claim) outstanding success. It is simple, fool-proof and
safe if done properly. There are several articles on my web site with
information on how to do it, if you are interested.
