For things like sloppy joes and tacos that can use a lot of meat we mix cooked rice/meat 50/50 to make it stretch further.

Chicken noodle soup (homemade not canned), hamburger stew (like beef stew but using hamburger instead of stew meat), Beef & noodles (wide egg noodles, hamburger, and beef gravy mix), Potatoes and hamburger gravy, We made chicken spaghetti often because the chicken is cheaper than gr beef, rice a roni type meal with chicken or beef (I mix up the dry ingredients ahead of time so it is like the box mix only much cheaper. I try to keep cooked diced chicken in the freezer so it is easy to put this meal together quickly)

I have found a lot of recipes we use on moneysavingmom.com and hillbillyhousewife.com
