Budget friendly meals-Breakfast to Dessert

ys looking for meals that are filling, budget friendly, & easy to make.

Breakfast Burritos

I found these breakfast burritos that can also be frozen so you can have something ready to go in the morning. I had these for dinner one night.

Breakfast Burritos

What you need:

  • wraps
  • Goya Pinto Beans in olive oil, cilantro, & onion ( this does have ham flavoring) If you want to make it vegetarian maybe try salsa & pinto beans
  • Goya Beans
  • 6 Eggs
  • Cheese
  • 1/2 cup of cooked rice
  • salt & pepper
  1. Scramble eggs, season with salt and pepper. Take out of pan
  2.  Pour can of beans into pan, cook for about 4 minutes.
  3.  Add back beans & rice to the scramble eggs.
  4. Add to wrap, sprinkle cheese, and roll it up

These were really good. Next time I will try using salsa & pinto beans since I don’t care for the ham flavor. It isn’t strong but I just want to try another way.

Brownies

Pumpkin Brownies

bake as directed, just check on them.

I would add chocolate chips to these because you can taste a little it of the pumpkin, which takes away from the chocolate flavor.
