The 15 bean soup package jazzed up with ham in soup and shredded cheese on top.

But what could be cheaper than a good box of mac and cheese with more cheese mixed in hence my cholesterol problem.
Im with with you crewsk I love any legume available.
Especially with more cheese.

I don't know about you, but a big pot of chilli costs me about $30 to make

One of my favorite cheap meals, that takes about 8 minutes from the time you crack the first can til the time you eat is creamed tuna on toast. Open a can of cream of mushroom soup, add two cans of tuna, lightly salt and pepper and add milk to change the consistency if necessary. Bring to a quick boil, remove from heat and serve over toast. Can't beat it for time and money.

middie, this is one of my favorites, also. Sometimes, I will substitute ground sausage for the ground beef. My other favorite inexpensive meal is ground beef and beef flavored rice-a-roni.

I love a big pot of crowder peas cooked with ham, bacon or smoked sausage and onion, with cornbread on the side.

My "ham salad" is a good one, too. I grind a pound of balogna, a pound of any hard cheese, and 8-10 hard-boiled eggs, then mix together with Miracle Whip, mustard and sweet pickle relish. It's good as a snack on crackers, or as a sandwich, toasted or not.

Then there's the ubiquitous SOS...I used chipped beef, mushrooms, peas and my own white sauce, and serve it on bisquits. My family loves it.

A turkey on sale is a great bargain...I can feed a family of four for a week with a 14 lb. bird.

Cheap and fast is a roasted chicken with oven roasted potatoes. Whole chickens are fairly inexpensive. I normally buy them when they are on sale and leave them in my freezer.

Butter, herbs, garlic and lemon and olive oil are always in my pantry. I wash the chicken and pat it dry and make an herb butter with butter, herbs of my choice, finely chopped garlic and lemon or lime zest. I smear it over the chicken. I stuff it with the lemons or limes that I have left over from zesting and leftover herb stems. Bake it in an oven at 400 degrees.

While the Chicken is being roasted I wash some poatotes (Idaho ones are fine since I get them for less than 2 dollars for an entire bag). Scrub them really well and cut them into small cubes. Toss with herbs, olive oil and lots of garlic and bake alongside with the chicken.

In less than a hour you have a great meal that is easy on the pocket. I think with everything added it's under 10 dollars and can feed a family of 4 atleast in my house because I have younger kids.
