The other day, someone told me that they didn't cook because recipes are either too complicated, too expensive, or too time consuming. To cut down on cost, I will plan 2-3 meals around a group of ingredients. For example, I've made nachos, chili and tonight's recipe with the same cheese and spices. I also tend to keep my meal recipes down to 10-15 ingredients or so and I usually get at least 2 meals out of one cooking session. Soup is a great meal because you can fix it and then let it simmer until you're ready to eat. I was able to make this soup in about 15 minutes!
