I try to make at least one meatless meal per week - this is more for financial reason, but it also helps us consume far less calories and fat!
This past Monday, I tried a recipe I borrowed from a blogger (sorry whoever you are - I forgot where I found it to link back to you). She called it Cuban Black Beans.
1 can black beans
1 can corn
1 cup cooked rice
then totatoes, shredded cheese, green onions, or sour cream can be used to dress it up a little.
I cooked the rice till it was almost done, then added the black beans (to heat them up) and a can of chili ready diced tomatoes (I don't do fresh tomatoes). I heated my corn separately, because Mr. Right doesn't like corn mixed in with his food [eye roll]. After stirring thoroughly for a few minutes, dinner was ready!
I topped mine with corn and shredded cheese. He just had his beans, rice, and tomatoes with jalapenos.
The meal totaled $2.22, and there was some leftover for my lunch today! To make it even more frugal, forget about the cheese and you have dinner for two for only $1.67!
