What is Sunday brunch without eggs? Put them on a ‘quesadilla’ and they’re especially good. Today we used quesadilla cheese, but it didn’t seem to make much difference to the taste.
- One flatbread (half of two) costs 50c a serve
- Half a can of refried beans, shared across two halves: 26c
- A generous splash of spicy sauce is 15c per serve
- Quesadilla cheese is $2.69 for 8oz and we used 2oz, split between two is 34c per serve
- Two eggs each adds $1.00 per serve.
Lunch today was satisfying for $2.25 per serve
Our meat box once again had a Boston Butt included so pulled pork it is! Paired with Esquites (Mexican corn salad) and white rice to absorb the run-off from the pork. Yum.
- At $20.32 for just over 2 lbs it makes at least six good serves, or $3.37 per serve
- Onion and garlic for the pork adds 25c per serve
- Chicken stock adds 14c per serve
- White rice adds 35c per serve
- For the corn we used Trader Joes Fire Roasted frozen corn to get grill flavor, which cost $2.49 for a pound, and we used half a packet for three serves, or 42c per serve
- Cotija cheese is probably the most important ingredient in the esquites and fortunately this time we found some at our local Ralph’s supermarket for $3.99 for 8oz, and we used about 1/4 or 33c per serve.
- 1 lb of limes we $1.29 and we used 1/6 or 5c per serve
- Add 30c for seasoning and oil
- Add 30c for the pickled onion.
Dinner tonight was excellent for $5.16. The esquites were definitely better with cotija and perfect with the pulled pork and rice.
