Cooking on a budget

I love meals with few ing and big flavor, with left overs to make lunch a breeze. Eating beans in the place of meat and eating breakfast for dinner a few nights a week also help stretch your dollar.These recipes are quick, easy, and full of flavor. Being on a budget doesn't mean bland.

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.
