Re: The "~$5 Meal Ideas~" thread...

We love this one. It also reheats and freezes well. DH's mom got it out of an old recipe book wayyy back when DH was a toddler. It's fantastic though and very low budget if you already have the spices on hand. My kiddos eat it up like crazy! It's super mom-friendly since it only takes about 15-20 mins to whip up and your only mess is a pan, spatula and measuring spoons hehe.

Spanish rice with beef

1 lb ground beef
1 can of corn
1 can stewed tomatoes
1c water
1 1/2c minute rice
1/2tsp chili powder
1/2tsp oregano
1/4tsp garlic powder

Brown beef, breaking into pieces. Drain fat. Stir in everything except rice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, add rice and cover for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit 2-3 minutes. Stir before serving.
