Cheap-ass Eats Vol. 1- Five Can Chili

Five can chili

I am broke. I am lazy. I have weird nutritional considerations.

This is why I have eaten the same three meals for about three weeks running. This does not include sushi-potluck night, or the two meals of leftovers it afforded me, or the burritos a friend made, or the burritos a friend took me out to eat – TWICE. I WILL BUILD SHRINES TO THESE FRIENDS.

This is meal #1.


Go to ALDI. Buy these:

– 2 cans diced tomatoes, Mexican style
– 2 cans red beans, Mexican style
– 1 can corn

Incidentally, this will cost you $3.

Go home. Dump them all in a pot. Warm it up. Eat a bowl.

This will feed you 4-5 meals. If you have the money, you can put cheese on it. If you are some Bruce-Wayne-type kabillionaire, you can add ground turkey.

If you are broke, you can add leftover cheese cubes from your office.


Next time: tuna potato!


Draws. Sweats. Eats too much sugar-free candy.

    Ew. Ewwww. Ew.

    Ass is an adverb, not an adjective.

    1) That looks GREAT! A spritz of hot sauce and I imagine that would be absolutely yumptious.

    2) I have a game I play, where any time someone uses the phrase “*-ass *” I move the hyphen over to the right to make “* ass-*.” It created a plethora of giggles over your headline for this post.
