Publix sells Old El Paso dinner kits for $3.15 each. I waited until they were on BOGO, getting them for $1.58 each. PUBLIX ran an Old El Paso digital coupon for $1 off the purchase of three OEP products. I then used a Kroger 75¢ coupon (buy three) for a final cost of 99¢ per dinner kit.

Update: I just got 12 taco shells for $1.09 on manager’s special at Kroger (9¢ each). 1/25/21 So, deals keep coming around.

I also bought Bush’s vegetarian black beans for 24¢ a can (99¢ sale + a 75¢ Bush coupon). I got a 2-liter bottle of soda for 37.5¢ (Publix 75¢ store brand on BOGO). I got a 5 lb. roll of ground beef at $1.99 lb, and got 12 servings per pound. I also got Old El Paso taco seasoning mix packs for .39 cents (manager’s special). You can make your own seasoning mix.
