My favorite cheap meal is pinto beans in a pot covered with homemade chicken broth (or water with a bit of boullion), add 1 t. cinnamon and 2 t. cumin ... simmer. I sometimes serve it over rice, but usually by itself and a side of cornbread. It's simple, fabulous, and everyone in my family loves it. My husband likes raw onion cut up in it too.
