- I have $35 to feed our family of 5 for the next 8 days, so I’m about to get creative!
Check out this post to see my inventory list.
Day 1 needs to be strictly from my inventory list because I only shop on Wednesdays (double ad days at Sprouts). Something jumped out at me immediately and is a quick and easy go-to meal. This makes great leftovers, or even a good start to the day! Plus, its quick to make, so you can whip up a lunch in a New York Minute.
Kidney Bean Fajitas
This is so easy, and is usually made from things I have on hand on a regular basis
1 red bell, cut in strips
1 green bell, cut in strips
1/2 large yellow onion, cut in strips
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 can of kidney beans (or about 2 cups)
1 tsp Cumin
Salt, to taste
Shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, salsa(optional)
- Saute the bell peppers, onion, and garlic, until just starting to soften and caramelize.
- Add kidney beans and spices and cook until heated through. The beans start to fall apart, which I love.
- Serve with optional garnishes, or whatever you have on hand!
For the kids, I like to rip up a tortilla and put the mixture in a bowl, like a burrito bowl. Otherwise, they make a serious mess.
If you like things spicier, you can also add chili powder, but I find my kids really don’t like it.
