Always on the look out for low cost meals my WHOLE family will love. This one happens to require little effort and low cost and everyone LOVED IT! I think it will become part of our regular meal rotation for a while.
Total cost per person you ask? || $ 1.60 || INCLUDING A SIDE SALAD & RICE
1 bag turkey meatballs (I used the Sam’s Choice brand)
28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. dried parsley
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1/2 cup sharp cheddar grated for garnish
Green onion and jalapeno for garnish
In a large skillet that is oven proof, over medium heat, saute your meatballs in a little oil, browning on all sides, stirring occasionally. After about 5-6 minutes, add the spices and heat through, stirring to coat the meatballs. Once the spices are fragrant, about 1 more minute of cooking, add the crushed tomatoes, stir and bring back to a simmer.
Simmer over medium heat for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to combine. While the sauce is simmering, make your rice and salad.
Happy dinner time!xo
