Re: The "~$5 Meal Ideas~" thread...
I have a good one- it is from Weigh****chers Versatile Vegetarian.
Southwestern Casserole- serves 4
1 can (approx 15 oz) yellow or white hominy (usually in the Goya section)
1 can (12 oz) mexi-corn or regular corn
1 can diced tomatoes (I use chili-style if I am using mexi-corn)
1 can black beans
flour tortillas or tortilla chips- optional
This is SO EASY. Drain your black beans, hominy, corn, and some of the liquid from the tomatoes. Throw it all in a casserole dish- I use a 9x9 inch pyrex. Heat in the oven on 350 for about 30 min or until hot. Top with cheddar, throw it back in the oven to melt the cheese, and voila! I chop a flour tortilla if i have one or crunch up a few tortilla chips.
The whole shebang costs about $4 total, depending on how much cheese you use. I got the corn at PriceRight, and it was only $.33 a can.
