2 days ago I made homemade nachos for dinner. I used some ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning and chili powder. I saved alot of it for another meal. The next night I used that leftover taco mix and made chili. Tonight, I'm taking that leftover chili and having chili dogs. Tomorrow if there's any chili leftover I will mix the chili with noodles and serve it for lunch.
So, that will be 4 meals from 2pds of ground beef at $1.69/pd = $3.38 or $.84 a pound of meat per meal. That's not bad for 6 people.
