Profahoben_212Like borty said...burritos of any type are cheap and filling. But a solid bet is Mac and cheese and and meat...hot dogs...or lunch meat etc...then quina or rice and meat and veggies is cheap. And a solid super cheap betbis getting the massive bag of cheese and tortillas and maybe some meat to make quesadillas
ScootSkiLyfeThis ain't no home-cookin' but the beefy fritos burrito at Taco Bell hits. $1 for 550+ cals. Granted, not super healthy by any means. Nice thing for my vegetarian ass is I can get it with refried beans vs. beef. Smacks
skiP.E.I.It's pretty easy and cheap to make hummus, because the bulk of it is chick peas which are pretty cheap.
You need tahini, chick peas, garlic and olive oil plus you can add whatever other ingredients you want like jalapenos or olives to change the flavor.
I like making burritos, super versatile and they are just as good no matter what kind of meat or veggies you use. Pan fry some onions and garlic in oil, then add black pepper, salt, chili powder, cumin and cayenne pepper until you like the colour, then add black beans or whatever kind of meat you have until it's cooked. For fish (I like haddock for this) I find it's better to coat the fillets in oil and the aforementioned spices, then fry it. Then pile on some fresh veggies and pico de gallo in a wrap.
Roast chicken is always good, if you're going to spend a few hours at home anyway. I always stuff it with bread crumbs cooked in any combination of savory, thyme, sage and parsley with onions and celery and minced apple and/or raisins. It's nice to glaze it with olive oil, honey, salt and pepper. Just remember to baste it, and you can add a little white wine or lager as you're doing that. Then you can use the carcass and bones to make chicken soup. Mashed potatoes are super easy and delicious too. Just cut the potatoes into 1" chunks and boil them, then mash in some sour cream, butter and green onion. If you choose potatoes with a really thin skin like fingerlings or some red potatoes you don't even have to peel them first.
TnskiNot exactly cheap but damn that sounds good probably my favorite way to fix potatoes is cut bacon in 3/4" pieces and put a few in nonstick frying pan and grate potatoes, rinse well , squeeze out all the water ,sprinkle over the bacon, put a few pieces bacon on top cook till golden, flip, cook till golden, slide on plate, salt and enjoy my crispy bacon browns, delish
theabortionatorThere's a taco bell in town but I think Ive only been 3 times because there are at least 4 other ridiculously dank mexican joints around it with good prices. 2 within 100 yards of the tbell
