I love to make this meal because you seriously get
a big bang for your buck. It's filling, healthy and is even more
delicious the next day. Wanna see how much I spent?
3 green peppers - $2.94
2 corn on the cobb - $1.00
1 block of cheese - $2.99
1 pound of turkey - $4.25
1 can of kidney beans - $0.89
1 can of crushed tomatoes - $1.99
1 onion - $1.49
1 jalapeno - $0.25
Total - $15.80 or $2.63 per person!
I say that is a fiesta worth having.
|My secret to a Thrifty Meal is to use ingredients on sale|
and a lot of imagination!
|I usually cut my peppers lengthwise rather than off the top.|
Easier stuffing, easier eating.
|Roasting the peppers before stuffing ensures a cooked pepper.|
|I like to put all my favorite spice combinations into small tins. |
Saves counter space and time.
I call this one,
Southwest is the Best!
Equal Parts of Cayenne, Cumin, Paprika,
Onion Powder, Garlic Powder
|Corn was on sale at the market, so in it goes!|
|Chedda' makes it bedda'|
