The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Chili aka Frito pie!

This is a great recipe if you have picky eaters in your house. I haven’t found a kid yet that didn’t eat it!

What you’ll need:

1 lb ground beef
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
1 can ranch style beans
1 pkg chili seasoning
Shredded cheddar cheese
Frito’s or crackers

Brown the ground beef, drain and return to pan. Stir in chili seasoning, tomato sauce, tomato paste and beans. Heat through. Serve over Frito’s (I love) or just in a bowl with crackers. Garnish with shredded cheese. It’s really good and ready in about 15 minutes! Feeds 4.

Cost:
ground beef – $2.00/lb
tomato sauce – $0.33/can
tomato paste – $0.49/can
ranch style beans – $0.89
chili seasoning – $0.65
shredded cheese – cheddar – $1.50
Frito’s – $2.00
Total – $7.86
