Here is how I am planning on stretching it. *
Take the meat and divide it into 3 sections (about 1.5 lbs each).
Take the first 1.5lb and make crock pot chili. Use the tomato sauce and chili seasoning, 1/2 the onions,and serve with bread. You can also add a can of Kidney beans, if you like your chili with beans. If not, then you can use the leftover chili with some cooked pasta like macaroni, rotini or penne for a goulash later.
Second meal, use the rice mix and add another section of the meat and a can of corn for some fun dirty rice. You can also make some cornbread to go with it.
Third, use the last section of meat for tacos! Brown the beef with the other half of the onions and add some Taco seasoning for easy tacos! (I save any leftover taco meat in the freezer until the next taco night and just add into the fresh)
The combo deal typically is under $10, adding in the cost of beans, seasonings, and canned veggies, and taco shells you can have 3 great meals for $15 or less.
*not all of these meals will be eaten in the same week
