Bargain Meal of the Week


Each week, I post a Bargain Meal idea, based on our local New Seasons Market ad of the week. This week, they have plenty of “Mexican” foods on sale, along with a salsa tasting over the weekend. A vegetarian quesadilla recipe seemed like the perfect choice for dinner! (Sale prices are shown in red.)

1 teaspoon Olive Oil = $0.26
1/3 Onion, finely diced = $0.26
2/3 clove Garlic, minced = $0.04
1 entire (15 ounce) can Black Beans, rinsed and drained (Westbrae on sale for $1.50/can) = $1.50 (increased in amount from original recipe)
