Don't you just love a meal that is budget friendly, super easy, and lick your bowl clean good?
Then you my friend are in luck!
I first had this Taco Soup a few years ago at a home warming luncheon.
It became a fast favorite.
So when a friend of mine had her 3rd little boy, it was a no brainer what to make.
Pantry Taco Soup
1 can Tomato Sauce
1 can Diced Tomatoes
1 can Corn
1 can Chili
(I do 2 cans Chili)
1 can Black Beans
2 T Taco Seasoning
(you can add more or less if you like)
Dump all cans with liquid in to your crockpot, add Taco Seasoning and stir.
Cook on low 6 hrs or high for 4 hrs.
So easy but yet so good.
Sometimes or all the time you have a 3 yr old, who the second you start cooking or anything, needs you to stop everything and be her minion.
So as the great mom you are, you snap a somewhat fuzzy picture of her prefect patheticness.
Because no meal is complete with out desert.
1 can Apple Pie Filling.
Or make your favorite Apple Filling.
1/2 stick Butter, soften
1/2 C Brown Sugar
1/2 C Oats
Cinnamon to taste.
Poor apples into a greased backing pan.
Mix butter, brown sugar, oats and cinnamon together.
Sprinkle mixture over apples. Cover with foil.
Place in a 350 oven until bubbling, around 30 min.
Altogether I brought
Vanilla Ice cream
Almost everything I had on hand, so this meal fits in prefect with the save $100 challenge, I am doing.
Just goes to show you don't have to spend a lot to make a wonderful meal.
A great way to save some mullah when taking a meal to someone is to team up.
This what I usually do. Sometimes I bring the main dish, sometimes the sides.
Why not share the work and the joy of serving with a friend.
