After deviating from his original plan, he ended up buying and cooking an entire meal for just $7.50.

He scored two from Food Life Balanced, Premium Fully Cooked Chicken and Hamburger Helper’s Stroganoff Flavor.

He also got a can of canned Jumbo Green Beans, tortillas, and Velveeta cheese sauce.

The process

With two pans he threw in the chicken and got to work.

For flavor, he added some onions, black pepper, Lawry’s seasoning, water, and milk.

After letting it simmer, he added the Hamburger Helper and let it cook.

While that was on the stove, he picked up the other pan and began making cheese quesadillas.

Lastly, he cooked the green beans in a separate pan with just a little oil, garlic, onion powder, and salt.
