 OF COURSE we could always google this, but I want to hear YOUR family recipes! My family has meals that are considered "poor meals" that are really cheap and good, heck even one is actually called "poor mans stew" based on my father's childhood lol.

 

Do you have any?

Spaghetti. And then "taco chili" with ground beef (or turkey) blackbeans, corn; with taco seasoning. Those were the "cheap" meals in our home growing up
