Shortage of ingredients for recipes

Godslamb | Sep 30, 2011 01:53 PM

Hi all,

I was wondering if I could get some help with a few possible recipes.

My husband lost his job almost a month ago, so I am trying to make meals with limited ingredients.

I was wondering what I could make with 1/2 lb lean ground beef, half a pepper, a small can diced tomatoes, an onion or two and some spices I have, that isn't spaghetti sauce. (We have no pasta, just rice)

Also, for some reason I have a large bag of frozen peas, and a large bag of frozen corn. I have no broth ingredients, but I do have a few chicken bouillon packets. Could I make a corn chowder or pea soup of some sort?? I have no other meat products. No celery or fresh veggies.

Thanks for any ideas!!

(we will be going to the food bank shortly, if we are approved)
