Viva La Mexico!! Feed your family for under $22!

Let's face it...Mexican food is not only easy to prepare, but it's very inexpensive. I always turn to Mexican food whenever I'm throwing a dinner party because I can feed more people for me cheap! Hey...our economy is bad...sue me!

Here's another family favorite that seems to be a crowd pleaser! My infamous Enchilada Bake and spanish rice!

2lbs. 80/20 lean ground beef @ $2.88 (ON SALE)
1 bottle of salsa verde @ $1.89
2 large cans of green enchilada sauce @ $2.89 each
3 dozen corn tortillas @ $.98
16oz. Mexican blend shredded cheese @ $4.59
1 bag of green onions @ $.99
1 bunch of cilantro @ $.50
1 small can of olives @ $.49
1 box of Rice-a-Roni Spanish Rice @ $1.18
1 can of whole kernel corn @ $.58
1 can of diced tomatoes @ $.58
1 bag of salad @ $.98

Ok, add that up at it's $21.42 and this meal can feed a family AT LEAST twice! I tend to load plates up with salad to make the meal stretch a little further!! I DID say I was cheap, right? Hehehe...
