Chili beans will know become one of my pantry staples! I always have the other ingredients on hand an excellent emergency meal!
Great recipe and so nice to be able to make a small amount. Of course, leftovers are delicious but high in calories.
Have you tried freezing this after cooking it? It sounds delicious and could be breakfast, brunch, lunch, or or dinner
One of my favorites, too. High protein and good source of fiber at a low price
I like to add carrot, potato, and garlic to this soup. A pinch of thyme gives it more elegance. And, when you’re cooking ridiculously cheap food, elegance is great!
One of my favorite soups. I like to add celery, potatoes, and sometimes green pepper. More vegetables stretch the protein and add nutrition.
Do you ever stretch this more with rice or beans? I’m thinking of the carnitas burritos served in many restaurants. I want the meat to be enhanced, just want more flavors and textures
This is amazing. Delicious and nutritious! I’d love to see more of these super cheap menus.
Used the bread dipping mix from this site with leftover homemade bread sticks sliced 1/4″ thick. Gave it a great tadte and high-end lookNovember 18, 2012 at 7:44 pm in reply to: Bare bones-back against the wall meal plan for 2011-2012 #434977
I would love to see a nutritional analysis done on the $2.00 daily menu. The menu looks tasty and varied. I’m guessing it could even be lower with homemade bread.
This could be called “Deconstructed cabbage”. And any deconstructed dish is very trendy.
To reduce costs even more, use thighs and or drumsticks and use chopped onion instead of pearl onions. This is excellent served over rice.
Are thr dehydrated onions a condiment for the hot dogs? Are any other condiments traditional? I’ve been looking for the recioe for a hot dog served in Harrisburg, PA called the “Spot Dog”, hope this is close.
Do you use maple syrup with these pancakes or is there another syrup or topping that enhances these terrific flavors?
