Taco salad

This meal is fast.

Pop open a bag of tortilla chips.  Heat up 2 or 3 cans of beans, add seasoning if you like.  Serve at the table with grated cheese, sour cream, salsa, lettuce, onion and anything else you can find.  May God bless you with avocados on sale, which indeed just happened to me.  OH, yes, cilantro–if there is any way you can get fresh cilantro, please do!

Kroger makes a bag of tortilla chips (with no trans fats) for $1.19.  This works great for one meal for us.  A can of beans costs between $.70 to $.80.  Add in salsa, and cheese and this meal still can squeak under the $6 range.

Enjoy your beans!

About onlifeandbeans

I like to make the adventure taste good by cooking tasty, wholesome food. Most of what I've learned in cooking, I've picked up from cookbooks and lots of practice. (Thank you, Fannie Farmer, for the right start. ) I so appreciate cookbooks that tell how and why to do something; that's why I do the same for my readers. I want to know what is in my food. I want my family to sit down and share a meal together. I want our food to taste good. Home-cooking takes time, but it gives back rich dividends in budget minding, good health and familial love. One meal at a time.
