Re: Craziest "thrifty" meal you've ever made?
I make an 'inside out' mexican taco salad.
Refried beans microwaved with shredded cheese. Throw on top any of: chopped tomato, avocado, shredded lettuce, crumbled up tortilla chips (good way to get rid of the ends of the bag), sour cream, hot sauce, canned jalapenos, and/or black olives.
It is kinda like a 7 layer dip, but a big warm gooey mishmash.
