Gluten Free Meatball Sub Enchiladas

Had pasta last night? Use those leftovers to make these Gluten Free Meatball Sub Enchiladas!Gluten Free Meatball Sub Enchiladas

I’m still on a diet! But slow down y’all,by diet, I mean fiscal.  We are keeping that budget tight and it has been quite an adjustment. But it’s nice to see that we can do it when we need to. With a family of 5, it is very easy to spend excessively on food alone, much less on other things like for entertainment or home-centered activities. 
Grain Free Meatball Sub EnchiladasSo here’s how this went. I made grain free spaghetti [1] with 2 bags of frozen GF meatballs [2], cut in half and jarred organic sauce [3] last night. Easy peasy and we roasted some cauliflower to provide veggies and bulk. It cost a total of $25.50 with lots of leftover meatballs and sauce and we fed 6 people with my mom here so it was $4.25 per person with food to spare.

Tonight, I pulled out the leftover meatballs and sauce and grabbed a bag of Siete Food tortillas [4] and a bag of shredded mozzarella [5] and assembled a meal just like you would enchiladas, but meatball sub style. And lemme tell you what. It fed 6 of us again for a total of $19 ($11 more in ingredients added to yesterday’s meatballs), which averages to $3.17 per person. Steamed some green beans we had in the freezer and called it a night.
