Have you missed me? It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged and I’ve missed it. I’ll spare you the details but after being sick for nearly two weeks with many different symptoms, I’m back to feeling like me! I’ve still been thinking of ideas and I thought some of you would enjoy a “10.00 dinner” post with recipes. I hope to post these meals once a week. They will be easy, delicious & cost $10.00 or less for the whole meal which will always feed at least 4 people. My first dinner is actually my hubby’s recipe for Easy Enchiladas. This was his go to bachelor recipe and its been a favorite in our family. I have my own enchilada recipe that I make when I have time, but this one is a great option when you are on a budget and short on time!
Jake’s Easy Enchiladas
What you need;
1 package of frozen burritos, any flavor you like (around $3.00)
1 can of cream of mushroom soup (around $1.00)
1 can of mild enchilada sauce (around $1.00)
1 cup of mild salsa (around $1.00)
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (around $1.00)
How to make;
Lay burritos in an even layer in a casserole dish. Mix cream of mushroom soup, enchilada sauce & salsa together, pour mixture over burritos. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes. Add cheese to the top and bake an additional 5 minutes until the cheese is melted & bubbly.
We like to serve our enchiladas with refried beans (around $1.50). There is a wide variety of refried beans available, find a brand you like. You could also add a green salad or I enjoy this mexi-corn recipe which can also use up leftover veggies.
1 can of corn (around $1.00) cooked by the directions on the can. I usually have these veggies on hand so it doesn’t cost any extra for me to add these in, use what you have. I add in about 2 tbls of each of these; diced green pepper, red onion & cilantro. If you have lime, add a squeeze of lime and I really like cumin so I add 1/4 tsp of cumin.
This meal which feeds 4+ with 2 sides, costs less than $10.00 and will take you about 30 minutes to make.
For my low carb followers, I promise to make some of the $10.00 meals low carb too & I also promise you’ll never have to use any coupons to make these meals at the $10.00 price….however if you do use coupons, your cost will be even lower!
