I generally enjoy “Poor Man’s Cuisine” the most

I got to thinking, what were some of my favorite dishes to eat?

Pinto beans
Rice in every way; fried rice, jook, plain, rice pudding
Pulled pork
Dal
Chili
Roasted chicken
Pizza
Noodles, like ramen, but not instant. Pasta is good too.
Stews
Potatoes; mashed, baked, fried
Tofu

Most of my favorite dishes are cheap and filling, made with cheap ingredients.

What say you? What are some of your favorite dishes that’d be considered “poor man’s cuisine”?
