Pasta and Frijoles
Half a small package of pasta (4 pesos for the packages)
A third a can of black beans (10 pesos for the whole can)
1 tomato (5 pesos for a kilo)
1 onion (10 pesos for a kilo)
Optional: A chipotle pepper (5 peso for a can)
These directions are very complex, so pay attention Boil the pasta using purified water. Maybe tap water will work, since the water is boiled but I don't want to chance it. While that's boiling cut up the tomato and onion. When pasta is done drain 90% of the water, add the beans, cut up tomatoes and onion and the pepper. Continue cooking untill the tomatoes are soft. Total cost: 2 peso for the pasta, 3 peso for the beans and a peso or so for the rest is about 6 peso or 60 cents. I got complaints on how this smelled.
Pasta and guten. The same only replace beans with a third a pack of flavored guten. Total price is horribly expensive now...about a dollar.
Guten and tortillas. This is sorta like fajitas only cheaper.
a third a bag of fajita flavoured wheat gluten (22 pesos for the whole bag)
1 tomato and an onion.
Optional a chipotle
a few corn tortillas (5 pesos of 1/2 kilo)
chop the tomato and onion. cook tomato and onion in a pan with the guten untill the guten looks like cooked meat and the oninion is soft. Heat the tortillas in the same pan until hot. Put the guten mixture in the tortillas and eat. Cost about 8 pesos.
