I buy the 2-pack of butterball turkey sausages at SAL for 1.99. I use one in this recipe. I cut it in half, then make thin slices. It'll make this recipe twice, so the meat's only a buck--without a coupon!

1 sausage, cut down center and then sliced thin (1.00)
1/2 onion, diced (.25)
1/2 green or red pepper if you like--I grow my own, so this is free for me
1 can kidney beans, drained (.39)
1 can diced tomatoes, partially drained--retain about half the liquid (.39)
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp pepper (seasonings = .15?)

First, sautee the onion and pepper in a smidge of oil. Add the sausage and brown it just a bit. Add beans, tomatoes, and seasonings. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer the ingredients (if it's a little too dry, just add a touch of water). Serve on top of plain white rice and along side a veggie if you wish.

total cost of sausage mix: 2.18. Rice: .25 if that (get the cheap stuff or the good stuff on BOGO with coupons ). Add a veggie, and you have a complete dinner for under 3 dollars. (especially since I get the sausages with coupons, making them actually only 1.49/pack, so they're only .75 each).

Yum. yum.

*if you like it to be a little more like chili, add a .20 can of tomato sauce and drain completely the diced tomatoes.
