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
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
