Here is a great recipe that is both Frugal in time and in money!! Enjoy

Arizona Skillet
(8 servings)

2 Tbsp. oil (Olive is best)
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 can (16 oz. can) Kidney beans *Drained and Rinsed
1 pkg. (10 oz.) Frozen corn kernels
2 cans (14 1/2 or 16 oz. each) diced tomatoes *Including Juice
8 oz. Elbow macaroni *cooked and drained
Monterrey Jack Cheese, (Shredded)

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, green pepper, garlic, chili powder and cumin. Cook 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add Kidney beans, corn, and tomatoes with juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally *about 15 minutes. Toss with macaroni. Sprinkle Cheese to taste.

Money Saving Tip: When beans go on sale $ .50 or less, plan to buy a case of each type of beans you and your family enjoy eating. This will allow you to make very healthy meals at a moments notice. *As we say here at Frugal Living And Having Fun...."It's Better Than Fast Food"!
