Time and money are two things that most people have a shortage of. Thankfully, we can cut down our grocery bill and spend less time in the kitchen with one fell swoop. These simple meals are delicious, incredibly cheap to make and can be prepared with an ordinary household blender or immersion blender.
The rainy season finally showed up here in Costa Rica, which is the only chance of simulating any type of winter. And with winter, comes soups, stews and chili. This is when I started thinking about cheap food that I could make last a couple of days, and out came the southwest chicken stew. I’ve had some chipotle sauce in the fridge I’ve been eyeing the past few days and my husband made some blackbeans for gallo pinto, so I coupled that with some fresh sweet corn from the organic market on Wednesday in Escazú, added a little ‘this and that’ for an ultra successful TexMex dinner.
