For this week’s Frugal Fridays, I’m pulling out an old standby here at Casa Foodie. It goes back to the beginning of our marriage, even further maybe. The first thing is plain tacos, with all the trimmings, served with Spanish rice and refried beans on the side.
The second? Is a salad made with the leftovers the next day. So two meals for the price of one.
Here’s the breakdown of costs:
1 lb. ground beef = $1.99/lb. on sale
Package of Taco Rice = $1.00 on sale
Iceberg Lettuce Shreds = .99/bag
Roma Tomatoes = 4/$1.00
Refried Beans = .99
8 oz. bag cheddar cheese = $1.66 on sale
Taco shells = $1.49
Taco sauce = already on hand
Taco seasoning = already on hand
Sour cream = 4 oz of a 16 oz bottle ($1.99) = .50
For a grand total of $9.62 - just sliding in under the budget.
