It’s time for another Aldi’s Money Saving Meal, in fact, it’s past time. Sorry, trying to play catch up after being sick for 2 weeks.
Chili is a quick and easy meal. It can be thrown into the crockpot in the morning and ready for dinner. It’s also a frugal meal, a little goes a long way.
I’ve used this recipe for many, many years, getting it from an old friend, who lives in Nashville, Tennessee now, Dawn.
My recipe is a very large batch, part could be frozen, or like I did this time, I seperated into small containers for my husband’s lunch for the week. You could very easily cut the recipe in half.
- 2 lbs. Hamburger, cooked and drained $3.52
- 2 cans Tomato Soup $.98
- 2 cans Water $ -0-
- 1 large Onion $.08
- 1 T. Minced Garlic $.02
- 2 cans Chili Beans $1.38
- 2 cans Pinto Beans $1.38
- 2 cans Chili Style Tomato Sauce $1.38
- 3 T. Worchestire Sauce $.05
- 2 T. Garlic Salt $.02
- 5 T. Chili Powder (I usually use a little less) $.05
- 1 t. Cumin $.02
- Dash of pepper
Total for Chili $8.88 (enough for 2 meals, plus lunches)
Cook hamburger and onion, drain. Place all ingredients in crockpot and simmer on low for 8-10 hrs. or high for 4-5 hrs.
Sometimes we add sour cream and cheese to the top. And most of the time I serve it with cornbread.Often I make the cornbread from scratch, but the cornbread mix from Aldi’s tastes good and is quite frugal.
Cornbread Mix $.49
1 Egg $.06
Total for cornbread $.60
Total for meal $9.48
Dividing the recipe in half would make it $4.74 for one meal
