Frugal Eats- Chicken Wraps

Thanks Budget Savvy Diva for this great recipe for Easy Frugal Chicken Wraps!!

Perfect for summer time!

Ingredients:

1 pkg. tortillas
2-3 fresh tomatoes
1 bottle ranch dressing
1 jar hot wing sauce (mild or hot)
1 pkg. breaded or plain chicken breast (you can also use fresh chicken breast, breaded and fried–or grilled–however I think it costs more and takes much longer)

Cook chicken as directed on package then cut into slices. Heat tortillas in the microwave (quickest). Place tortilla on plate, add chicken, tomatoes, wing sauce and ranch dressing. Wrap and enjoy!

These are super delicious and you can mix and match your toppings to suit you. All together it takes about 25 minutes to make and feeds a bunch so it goes a long way!

Frugal Eats- Ramen Noodle Stir Fry

Here is this weeks Frugal Eats by Budget Savvy Diva!! Enjoy!

Ramen Noodle Stir Fry
Ingredients:

1 pkg. Ramen noodles

1/2 or full bag of generic frozen veggies (or fresh, in season)

Inexpensive cut of meat to match Ramen flavor; for “beef” use cube steak, breakfast steak, etc.–whatever is on sale. Or go vegetarian, extra firm tofu, cubed and seasoned is great too.

Your choice of spices.

Directions:

Thinly slice or chop your choice of meat. Heat small amount of oil in wok or large pan. Add meat and brown quickly. In another pot, boil noodles about 2 minutes. Remove meat and let sit on paper towel lined plate to remove excess grease. Add veggies, Ramon flavor pack, any other seasoning (soy sauce, Chinese five spice, curry, red pepper flakes… use your imagine or gear toward family favorites). Add a splash of liquid (water, white wine, orange juice, etc…), stir constantly. Add noodles and meat to warm through and mix flavors.

If you prefer a more “saucy” dish, thicken chicken or beef broth with cornstarch and add to the veggies and beef. Leave noodles out and serve the mixture ON TOP of plain noodles for best results.

Cheap, Fast, Variety.

Frugal Eats: Apple Pie Chocolate Chip Cookies

This Recipe is brought to you by Budget Savvy Diva’s Frugal Eats – Head on over HERE  for more great recipes!

This week I did something a little different – plus a video for you as well.

I was at Rite Aid and saw that chocolate chip cookie mix for .99 cents – so I snagged it anything below $1.00 for cookie mix is a good buy to me. When I went to make the cookies I thought I should experiment a bit. I love to experiment in the kitchen – do you?? I decided to take an apple and make

Apple Pie Chocolate Chip Cookies
I make the cookies like it told me on the package BUT I took the apple cut it up into small chucks on sauteed in a grill pan with 1 tbs of butter – 1/4 cup of brown sugar and a dash of cinnamon for about 10 minutes – until it was nice and soft.

Looks Good I think!

Final Cost: Less the $2.00 for 18 Cookies
