My mom sent me this recipe from my sister-in-law who is a tremendous cook--you may not think much of it, that is, until you taste it and see the price tag: $1.86 total! 3 Servings! $0.65/serving.
It doesn't get any cheaper than that for college cooking and low-income meals! These are cheap and common ingredients require no skills or equipment, but the flavors will blow your mind!
Great addition to burgers, grilling and for get togethers. I only made this with 1/3 of the ingredients, but I have posted the original amounts in case there are multiple mouths to feed!
Check out how this recipe fits into your weekly menu plan, grocery shopping and college budget on the blog this week!
