the boys like homemade bean burritos. cook and drain the beans until soft then mash. you can odd taco meat or whatever youd like. i do ham in delux mac and cheese. the boys say it tastes like hot pockets. i take four cups of rice while boiling add tomatoes or rotel diced onions and diced green peppers. after its done cooking i combine it with seasoned ground beef and top with cheese. in the crock pot ill put cooked small shells a can of corn can of rotel or diced tomatoes three cans of tomato sauce and a package of taco seasoning let the combine for about an hour then add taco beef to the mixture and cook another two hours on low or anhour onhigh

 we like baked chicken legs and they are cheap.  If you want to "fancy" them up put on bbq sauce.  Another good idea put chicken legs in tomato sauce in your crockpot and serve over pasta.
