I found a wonderful recipe for a dish called Mexican Casserole over at Bits and Pieces from My Life. I served mine with cheese, sour cream and Fritos. DH and I found about 1 C of this to be plenty for an adult's meal. When prepared, the recipe makes 11 cups, so if you figure 1 cup = 1 serving, that's 11 servings! Being the frugal/OCD person that I am, I also calculated the price per serving; if you serve the dish with the toppings that I used and use the 11 servings calculation, it comes out to around $0.80 a serving. I didn't have all of the items in the recipe on hand, so I had to buy some items at full price. The cost would be much less if you shopped for these items on sale. For those diet conscious, here is the nutritional information: 184 calories, 2 g fat, 32 g carbs, 11 g protein (nutritional info doesn't include toppings). Cheap, delicious, and pretty nutritious!
