Aug 29: In and Out Burger; Bacon and Black Bean Chili with cheddar, sour cream, avocado & green onions


Back to the ‘normal’ Burbank Monday with an In and Out Double Double Animal Style for Foodie Philip.

Lunch today was $4.03 per serve.


The remainder of the bacon and bean chili was waiting, with a slightly different serving technique for the avocado that keeps the cold sour cream away from the hot chili.

A sprinkling of chili lime salt added a little zest.

  • Bacon ends cost $4.99 for the container, but this recipe used about 1/2 of that, or 50c per serve
  • Onion and garlic – about 5c a serve
  • The beef we used is expensive – pasture raised, dry aged ground beef from our monthly meat delivery – at $9.08 or $1.82 a serve
  • Spices – about 12c a serve
  • Diced fire roasted tomatoes are $2.19 the can, or 44c per serve
  • Tomato paste was 89c or 18c a serve
  • The beans were 99c a can, or 20c a serve
  • Each serve got half an Avocado or 84c per serve
  • Cheese was 55c per serve
  • Sour cream cost $3.99 but we used 1/4 on tonight’s meal, or 50c per serve.

All up dinner cost us $5.20 for a very filling serve.
