Howdy All! I want to talk to you about shoppin for groceries on a budget. Use coupons when you can, look for the non-brand name stuff..you will be surprised on how on most occasions taste better than the name brands. Its hard to buy food when the cost of food is so high these days. I am going to put a reciepe on here that is really budget friendly and i have ate this when i was a kid..to my surprise now that im an adult its not expensive at all!
My Momma's Mexican Casserole
1-2 lbs. of gorund beef
1 med onion (yellow or white)
1 can of tomatoes w/green chilies (off brand of Rotel)
1 can of cream of mushroom or chicken
1 box of macaroni dinner
4 cups of a mild or sharp cheddar cheese
Preheat oven at 350 degrees
start with the ground beef brown meat over a med-high heat..chop medium onion..put onion into pan with ground beef. once your beefand onion mixture is done drain fat. place into casserole dish.
now you can open the can of green chilies, mushroom soup and put in a bowl along with the cheese powder from the macaroni dinner box mix all three until incorportated. Cook macaroni as directed on box. You can put the soup/tomatoe/cheese mixture into casserole dish. while you are waiting for the macaroni to be done you can mix all ingrediant that is in the casserole dish. when the macaroni is done mix that into the casserole dish as well. then sprinkle your 4 cups of cheddar chesse then put into oven and bake for 20-30 min. until chesse is bubbly or slightly brown. Then serve..makes about 6-8 servings..My mother taught me how to do this when i was young. So now im sharing it with you enjoy! Until Next time!!!
