Easy Meals Under $10

One-pot meals are crowd pleasers especially on cold nights, when your kids have hockey practice and you’re busy running around.

One-Pot Chili


  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can canned diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained
  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package chili seasoning mix


  1. Crumble the beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Drain off grease, and mix in the tomatoes, kidney beans and chili seasoning mix. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes (longer if time permits).
  2. Add shredded cheddar cheese, chopped scallions, cilantro, and sour cream to this basic recipe for an added kick.  Pair with a side of baked cornbread.

Cost $9.00

Save with Homemade Croutons

Cut your favorite sliced bread into cubes and coat lightly with PAM.  For added kick, sprinkle with dry herbs.  Toast on a baking sheet in a 350 oven until golden brown, turn occasionally.
