My favorite dump and go, not too expensive recipe is for bean soup.

4 cans of 4 different beans (your choice, ex: pinto, black, navy, great northern) do not drain
1 can diced tomatoes - do not drain
4 cans chicken broth
1 med. onion diced
1/2 cup lentils
1/2 cup split peas
1/2 cup brown rice

Mix all ingredients together in a big soup pot. Bring to a boil. Simmer for at least 30 min.

This can also be made in a crock pot. 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

This is my go to recipe when we haven't made it to pay day yet, but we still have to eat. We usually get two meals out of it, or at least one dinner then lunch for two of us.
