Soups seem to always be the most economical food choice. For less that $5 I have dinner for 7 done for two nights. You can't beat that! I left the cayenne, salt and pepper out since I am cooking for toddlers so it was kind of bland. I meant to add the seasonings to my bowl but I forgot till after I had sat down and then I was just to lazy to get back up. I did add some sour cream, cheese, and tortilla chips to the top of mine. The salty crunch of the chips was a nice addition if you ask me.
