I love it when I can make a meal out of leftovers or things I get for nearly free with coupons/sales. Today, I made a soup that was enough for two meals for our family and it only cost us less than $2 total.
I cooked an onion, a can of chopped tomatoes, and various spices until the onions were soft. My son does not like chunks of tomatoes or onions so I used the immersion blender after cooking them. I then added left over shredded chicken, leftover black-eyed peas, and leftover white rice. I deep fried corn tortilla strips and sprinkled them with salt. To serve the soup I placed it in a bowl with a sprinkle of cheese and spoon of sour cream. I put some of the tortilla strips on the side. It was a hit and we have enough for our lunch Sunday!
