$5 SOUPS! Quick and Easy Cheap Meals for Dinner!


The weather has been freezing so I thought it would be the perfect time to make some delicious soups! Then I thought $5 soups might be fun! You don’t have to spend a ton of money on a delicious meal! You can find the printable recipes here: $5 Taco Soup: Ingredients I bought for the Taco Soup: Ground Turkey $2.77 Black Beans $0.62 Diced Tomatoes $0.72 Corn $1.18 $5.29 – but it would be under $5 if they had the cheaper corn $5 Broccoli Cheddar Soup: Ingredients for the Cheddar Soup I bought: Whipping Cream $2.16 Onion $0.50 4 cups broccoli $0.84 2 cups cheddar cheese $1.86 $5. 36 – The Whipping Cream was expensive – You could also use whole milk and it would be a LOT Cheaper! Little More that $5 Vegetable Tortellini (ha ha): 1 can of rotel $0.60 1 zucchini chopped $0.75 1 cup chopped carrots $0.50 (only used half the bag) 5 oz of frozen spinach (Was $1.00 but you only need half of it so $0.50) 1 container of sour cream ($1.00) 1 package of tortellini $2.98 Total: $6.33 – A little more than $5, but this makes A LOT of soup! Ingredients and how to make it: 1 can of rotel 1 zucchini chopped 1 cup frozen chopped carrots 5 oz spinach 8 oz sour cream 1 package of tortellini 4 cups of water 4 chicken bullion cubes salt and pepper to taste 1/2 teaspoon thyme 1/ 2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1/2 teaspoon parsley 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder Instructions: Combine all in ingredients in a stock pot or slow cooker EXCEPT the sour cream and tortellini. Slow Cooker: Cook on low for 4 hours. Stock Pot: Cook until all the vegetables are cooked. When done on either one, stir in sour cream and tortellini. Stir frequently to prevent clumping in the sour cream. When the tortellini is done cooking, dish up and serve! #sixsistersstuff #easysouprecipes #5dollardinners .





  1. Oh my gosh.. only 4 weeks! It's gonna fly by!! Ok 3 things, #1 love all your pampered chef cooking utensils! Some of the ones I've seen you use are my favorite's.
    #2 I love how flexible you are when you cook, it just seems to make life easier! #4 For the life of me, I don't know where the green onions I bought disappeared to! I feel your frustration 🙂 Thanks for all you do!!!!!

  2. That broccoli and cheese soup looks amazing! I have everything at home besides the heavy cream. I’m assuming I can use half and half as well, right? I have a half gallon of it since I use it for coffee and cooking. I want to make it tonight for lunches this week.

  3. Love your videos; love the recipes also. THANK YOU! I'm wondering… would you be willing to add to your $5 recipes? At the end of each $5 recipe, would you give us a few add'l ingredient ideas to make the soup/meal heartier or to add add'l flavors? I don't know if that's even possible, but I love your ideas! (As an example if I'm not clear enough, I always add more chicken to white chili, and I add a whole block of cream cheese, rather than a half. So my chili is really about $8.)
    Thanks for all you do for us!

  4. Thank you for sharing. I like your recipe ideas and cooking tips. These easily come to being under $5/ serving, even adding the cost of things already on hand! Eventually, one has to buy the staples, so it should have been added to the cost. But I am way more picky as to the food and where I buy. (For example, I don't buy from Walmart – have seen way too many times mold, etc.) So I probably won't ever see that cheap for any of my meals. I have tried buying cheaper brands, etc but then I didn't like the taste – pitched. Then that becomes way more expensive. So for the most part, I stick to what brands and foods I like.
