Try These 8 Fabulous, Budget-Friendly Meals
In order to enjoy a fabulous meal, you do not need to spend a fortune. Let simple ingredients speak for themselves. You’ll end up with a meal that is worth talking about, yet won’t break the bank.

- Roasted Squash, Corn, and Black Bean Enchiladas
Do you love Mexican, but you’re sick of taco kits that end up costing you an arm and a leg?
Say hello to this healthy and delicious meal made from low-budget staple ingredients. From frozen corn to canned black beans, you probably already have most of these ingredients in your fridge.
- Pasta e Ceci
It doesn’t get much easier than this recipe. Although you will save some serious $$ on this family-pleasing meal, it tastes like a million bucks. All you need is pasta, tomato paste, chickpeas, and some flavorful aromatics, such as basil or garlic.
