The yummiest meal we eat is Black Beans and Rice. It costs under $5 for the whole meal.
1 box Rice a Roni (chicken flavor-blue box) or generic equivalent - $1
1 can Black beans or 1/2 lb of reconstituted... but canned is easier - $.50
1/2 c. salsa - $.50
1 bunch cilantro - $1
Garlic Salt to taste
Serve with tortilla chips and/or tortillas $2
Cook Rice according to box directions, reducing water by 1/4 c and adding salsa. Finely chop cilantro and drain black beans then add them to the very hot rice. Salt to taste. Serve with Tortilla chips/tortillas...
Estimated time to prepare 30 mins.
Some day I will post a picture.
