$5 dinner for a family of 4 - items purchased at WinCo Foods

WinCo $5 Bargain Meals - all ingredients purchased at WinCo Foods

I am happy to participate in the $5dollar dinners Bargain Meal of the Week.
For more of my $5 meals to go Bargain Meals and 1 trip, 1 bag, 5 dinners

My mom gave me this recipe:

Slow Cooker Chicken Ole' (recipe serves 8)


1 can cream of mushroom $.58
1 can cream of chicken $.97
1 cup sour cream $.54
2 tbsp grated onion ~$.10
2 cups grated cheddar cheese (divided)$1.25 (grated from the 2lb block of Tillamook cheese)
12 flour tortillas, each torn into about 8 pieces $1.68
3-4 cups of cubed, cooked chicken $2.18lb (cut up and cook)
7oz salsa $1.15

In a bowl combine soups, sour cream, onion, 1 1/2 cups of cheese.

Place 1/3 of each of the following in layers into a slow cooker: torn tortillas, soup mixture, chicken, and salsa, repeat layers 2 more times.

Cover. Cook on low for 4-5 hours. This does not cook well on high.

Gently stir. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Cover. Cook on low another 15-30 minutes.

Serve with tortilla chips and lettuce, and/or Spanish rice.

Total $4.23 for a family of 4 and a total of $8.45 for the whole recipe serving 8. This is under $5 a meal for a family of 4 per night for two nights or lunches.
