    Default Fun, frugal dinner ideas needed! Lets get creative!


    It is time to help me get creative! My hubby and I eat the same foods all
    the time and frankly, I am getting tired of it. We have chili, bean soup,
    tacos, spaghetti and some kind of chicken dish with rice. What I am needing
    from you are creative, but still frugal meal ideas for the two of us. Hubby
    is kind of finicky when it comes to some things. We donít eat hamburger,
    just in our chili or when we have hamburgers. We use ground turkey instead.
    We like the taste of it better. We are not opposed to chicken. I would just
    like more ideas to mix it up. I would LOVE to use the crockpot more, but I
    doní have any recipes for that.
    So please send your frugal and fun dinner ideas to me please. Thanks so much
    and I am looking forward to trying them out!

    I make a very simple dish I call Mexican Lasagna:

    1 package corn or flour tortillas (I prefer the corn)
    1 jar salsa
    1 pound ground meat (hamburger or turkey)
    shredded Mexican cheese

    I spread a little of the salsa on the bottom of a round baking pan,
    then place 1 tortilla on top (I buy ones that are almost exactly the
    size as the bottom). Mix 1/2 jar of salsa with the ground meat and
    spread 1/2 of this on top. Sprinkle on some cheese. Repeat layers
    ending with the plain salsa and cheese on top. Bake at 350* until
    warmed through.

    I wish I could be more precise with this recipe. I made it up and
    just put a little of this and a little of that so to speak. I make 2
    of these at a time and freeze the other one for another week. This
    feeds 2 of us well for dinner with some leftover for lunches the next
    day. Kim in MI
