Try one of these 19 cheap Mexican recipes for $3 or less per serving.
Mexican food is one of our favorite ethnic cuisines, but hitting the local burrito shop too often can take a toll on your budget. Stay in and create your own fiesta with EatingWell’s healthy, budget Mexican recipes. You could eat more healthfully, too, since many Mexican restaurants take a heavy hand with salt and fat—hardly good for our health—and hardly necessary, especially when so many ingredients key to Mexican food are inherently healthy (and inexpensive), such as corn, tomatoes, beans and rice. Making these healthy, delicious and cheap Mexican recipes on a budget at home will give you more control over what you put in your mouth—and what you take out of your wallet.
