I’ve posted the recipe for my Easiest Turkey Chili before, but I wanted to actually calculate the cost per serving. I made a huge batch — enough to feed my boyfriend and I for one meal a day for at least 5-6 days. So let’s say 10 servings, just to be on the conservative side.
Here’s the breakdown:
3 lbs of 15/85 ground turkey: $6.89
3 green peppers: $2.97
2 yellow onions: $1.58
2 28-oz cans of diced tomatoes: $2.58
2 14-oz cans fire roasted diced tomatoes: $1.98
2 14-oz can organic chili-spiced tomatoes: $2.78
3 14-oz cans chili-spiced beans: $2.77
14-oz can black beans: $.99
Grand total for 10 healthy servings: $22.54 Per serving total: $2.25
Try though you might, it’s hard to make a meal that’s halfway tasty and healthy for less than that! If you want to add a few tablespoons of cheddar cheese or sour cream, add about 30 cents per serving.
No, most of the ingredients aren’t organic, but all things considered, this is a pretty healthy, hearty, and tasty meal. Not to mention, it only takes about 15-20 minutes of hands-on time! Again, you can find the recipe for here . Go forth and save $$!
