Dehydrated Meals @ WalMart
« on: April 09, 2017, 05:42:58 pm »
Bear Creek Country Kitchens  has9-12 ounce package mixes of Chili, Vegetable Beef, Cheddar Potato and Minestrone.

All four can be had for less than $13-dollars.

What I do is to mic all four packages together. When ready for a meal, boil 1 cup water and add 1/3 cup of the mixture and  simmer until tender.

I always have cooked rice from the evening or days before and mix this in with the thickened soup/chili/potato mix.

The thing is, you get 25 1/3 cup servings from this set up for $13-dollars. About $0.50 per serving. Add in a cup of cooked rice or other grain such a Quiona and it is pretty darn good.

A whole lot cheaper than some other options, especially if you add in some Mozzarella Cheese to the mic, and 2-3 Tablespoons of Tomato Paste to the cooking mixture. Season with Thai Chili Paste and it is surprisingly good and works in cooler climates (the cheese).

Try them out at home to finesse the experience, I will bet it can work for you.

There are a lot of quick-cook meals available in many grocery stores.  Starting with rice or grain mixes, add some tuna or canned meat, some veggies, etc.
