Texas hash is one of the cheapest dinners my grandma taught me to make using her church cookbook. This easy weeknight dinner recipe uses cheap ingredients to create a spectacular meal.
Texas Hash – Cheap Dinner
This recipe came out of one of my grandma’s church cookbooks. These are cookbooks that I treasure with my whole heart. And even though this recipe does not come from my family, it comes from a sweet Christian lady, named Bobbie Dupuy, and to me that’s still exciting!
I am since then passed on the cookbook to another home. I wish so badly I would have snagged a picture to share with you. My grandma remembers Bobbie Dupuy, but wasn’t close to her. This recipe though, is cheap and a fabulous addition to our recipe keeper.
The only big changes I made was that I doubled the rice and liquid. I knew 1/2 cup rice was not enough. So I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as my family did. It really is easy and delicious!
