1 meal served 3 ways

This week has been, and continues to be, a busy week due to work, so I was unable to provide a list or have time to be in the kitchen.

For weeks like this, I make a crock pot meal that can last a few days.

With the help of my hubby, we made a big crock pot of taco soup.

We ended up serving it 3 different ways:

Hot dogs topped with the taco soup ingredients and served with sweet potato tater tots.
Taco soup served with corn bread
Taco salad.  (By the 3rd day this soup is thicker so it is nice a hearty)

Grocery List:

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 white onion
  • salad mix of your choice
  • tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers (whatever you like to top your taco salad with)
  • 1 package of hot dogs
  • 1 package of hot dog buns
  • 1 package of frozen sweet potato tater tots
  • 1 package of corn bread mix
  • 1 16-oz of black beans
  • 1 16-oz can kidney beans
  • 1 16-oz of corn
  • 1 8-oz of can tomato sauce
  • 1 14.5-oz cans of diced tomatoes w/ chilies
  • 1 1.25-oz packet of taco seasoning
  • shredded cheese (if you like to top your soup, salad or hot dogs with it)
This grocery list will cost you around $35 dollars, depending on your store and specials.

Next week will be another short dinner menu week due to 4th of July and all of the fun activities it brings!
