When Hubster and I moved to Minnesota for graduate school, we never expected what was about to happen. I got pregnant immediately, became too ill for my graduate assistantship and had to withdraw from school. We found ourselves living beneath the poverty line with a baby on the way. I quickly learned how to coupon and make cheap meals. When your grocery budget is $25 per week, meat becomes a luxury and you learn to incorporate a lot of beans into your diet. Beans are a great option for budget-friendly protein. This Chicken Enchilada Soup recipe was one of my go-to meals using affordable canned ingredients. Only after Hubster graduated and we moved back to Wisconsin for his professional position did we start adding chicken to this soup.
