As a single mother, my mom would pinch pennies and "throw something together" for supper. One of our favorites was probably the easiest to make!
This recipe is versitile. I make it now and serve over salad with corn chips for a family fave.

Ingredients

How to Make Mom's Poor Man's Grub

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel and dice potatoes and fry in shortening.
    Fry 1-2 pounds of hamburger; depending on how many people you are serving.
  2. Drain the hamburger, then add 2-3 cans of light red kidney beans, a pkg of lipton's onion soup mix and 2-3 cups of water. Simmer for 15 min- be careful it doesn't go dry.
  3. Serve the beans and hamburger over the potatoes for a quick and filling dinner.
  4. If you are on a diet, or just like to eat healthy... prepare the hamburger as above adding only half the onion soup mix and serve over a salad. My family loves it this way.
