Tater Tot Casserole

Tater Tots

Hamburger

Queso Blanco (White cheese like you would get from a Mexican restaurant)

As you can tell I had already used half of the hamburger. Go read my post How I Fed My Family Of 6 For An Entire Weekend For Less Than $50 to see why I done this.

I bought the hamburger and tater tots at Save-A-Lot and the queso at the Dollar General. I already had a box of macaroni and cheese that I made with the casserole.

Hamburger $9.72÷2=$4.86

Tater Tots $1.99

Queso $2.95

Mac and Cheese $1

Total: $10.80

I fed my family of 6 for around $10! You can’t beat that!

Now to how to prepare this amazing, cheap, easy meal
