Great way to make meat stretch...

SO, I love making meat stretch 
and I have come across a great way to make your 
BBQ Chicken and Pork meat stretch that is SO yummy and pretty much doubles your meat!    

I LOVE when I can make things healthier, 
while making my dollar stretch as well!  

BBQ Chicken OR Pork 
(cook 4 boneless Pork Chops, OR, 2 large chicken breasts in crock pot until tender)
After tender, shred meat and drain off juices

In a large pot on the stove saute together until VERY tender:
1 Tbsp. butter
1 large onion thinly sliced
1 large bell pepper thinly sliced

After veggies are tender add in:
1 sliced tomato
cooked Pork, OR, Chicken
1/2 cup (or more) of your favorite BBQ sauce
Bring to boil and simmer 10-15 minutes

Serve on homemade buns and 
enjoy a delicious, frugal meal 
with more veggies and less meat!
