I know I've seen some of you out there! Well, DH and DD both have food allergies (gluten, milk) and I want your thoughts on cheap foods to eat. If you need ideas, post your food allergy and we'll see if we can get ideas!

Any ideas?

I'll go first.

Chili. Dry pinto/Kidney beans, canned (or frozen) tomatoes, a can (or fresh) green chiles, a jalapeno, onion, ect. Great recipes can be found online. I serve it with a dash of lemon/lime juice (I use the bottled stuff because it is soooo cheap at costco), onions (green, red, white or yellow) and avacado. For me, avadado takes the place of cheese.

thai curry
thai curry paste, fish sauce, frozen stir fry veggies (costco), coconut milk, and brown sugar served over rice cooked in homemade chicken stock.

DD has a dairy allergy so we're a mostly dairy-free household. Almost all our joint meals are dairy-free, at least.

Are you looking for cheap main dish ideas or substitutions, or what?

we're vegetarian and ds can't have gluten, dairy, nuts, corn, etc. etc., so we all mostly skip those. we have burritos (ds has no tortilla, just fillings) chili, fried rice, dahl, um... we almost never have typical north american fare. we eat indian, mexican, thai, um... lots of stuff.
just ask a more specific question and i'd love to answer.

We're GFCF. The cheapest things are those that are naturally GFCF. Creating substitutes are expenisve.

Rubber chicken meals, mexican, Indian and Asian dishes are typically easy to fix and cheaper.
