Tuesday Meals Under $10

Mexican Soup we just had this for dinner last night.
(for a family of 4)

1lb gound beef or turkey $1.99 (we used turkey)
1 can diced tomatoes 69 cents
1 can corn 69 cents
2 cans black beans $1.50 for both
1 packet Taco Seasoning 79 cents

Shredded Cheese Optional (another good optional item is a dollop of cool sour cream)

Brown your meat and drain. We use extra lean so it never has any grease. Add diced tomatoes. Drain and rinse black beans and add. Drain corn and add. Add a can or 2 of water to cover everything. Last stir in the Taco Seasoning.
Sometimes I do this in the crockpot on low for 4 or 5 hours and sometime I put it in a large covered pot on the stove and simmer a 1 1/2 -2 hours.

We like to add a little sprinkle of Mexican style shredded cheese. It only takes a small portion of the bag.

Total cost not including cheese is $5.66. This can be lower if you catch the items on sale.
