The Frugal Kitchen: Dinner on a Dime .85 per serving

This is another dollar saving meal we make with leftover beans from our weekly meal of beans,rice/cabbage and cornbread muffins. I got this recipe from www.goodcheapeats.com

corn tortillas……………………………   $1.99 (20)
veggie oil …………………………………$25
cooked pinto beans…………………….$1.11
shreeded lettuce…………………………$.66
grated cheese……………………………..$.83
diced tomatoes…………………………..$.59
sour cream………………………………..$.75 (make sure to have another recipe that would benefit from sour cream this week too!)
 + corn large bag……………….. .13
15 servings

$8.17  or .54 per serving.

Total .54 per serving

2-4T oil
corn tortillas
2 1/4 cup dry beans cooked
1/3 head of lettuce shredded
1 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 pound tomatoes
1/2 cup sour cream

  1. Fry your tortillas in the veggie oil
  2. top with beans, cheese, lettuce, sour cream & tomatoes

We normally serve this with corn! When you add corn to this meal your total cost per serving is a whopping .84! This is another one of my families favorite meals. It’s simple, frugal and tasty!

Big Fat Kitchen Blessings!
