  • The heirloom tomato was $3.78 and we used about ¼ or 48c per serve

  • The beans are $1.00 per can and we used two, or 33c per serve
  • Canned tomatoes were $1.29 or 22c per serve

  • Sour cream cost $3.99 but we used 1/4 on tonight’s meal, or 50c per serve
  • The tostadas are 22 for $2.29 or 21c per serve
