Simple Meal Under 2 Dollaz

Was mad hungry last night after cleaning the house (thanks Choke for the idea) so decided to create something quick and easy without having to run to the store...

1 1/2 cups cooked pinto or black beans
1 cup corn
1 chopped tomato
1 chopped carrot
Taco Seasoning (packet)
2 tablespoons cilantro
1 cup whole grain rice (dry)
Blue corn chips (optional)
3/4 cup water


Combine beans, corn, tomato, carrot, taco seasoning, cilantro, and water in a pan on stovetop.
Bring to boil, then simmer for 15 minutes stirring frequently
Serve over rice
Garnish with blue chips or whatever else is chilling in the kitchen

$2...seems like at least 10. Looks good still the same.

I made this yesterday and I somehow spent 3.67 here in Wisconsin. Where are you guys based? Some of these ingredients were not cheap but non the less, thanks for the encouragement. I am balling on a vegan budget. Be well!!! Thanks Choke and Polymyth(i thinks thats how u spell it...peace

Peace Berg - I think most of the other contributors are in DC, but I currently live in the Buffalo, NY area. I should have noted that when I totaled up the price of the meal, it was based on the fact that I didn't use the whole bag of rice, etc. So it costs more than 2 bucks to buy the ingredients, but only 2 bucks to make the meal if that makes sense.

I'll be posting new recipe ideas soon. Thanks for reading!
