This sounds like a really good casserole, quick and easy to make. And as a bonus, a cornbread topping. On my to cook list. The time for prep or cook does not include the time to cook the pinto beans. This is a 3 step process, 1. cook beans, 2. prepare other items on stove top in a pot, 3. bake in the oven. Links to the shortcuts are listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Instructions
  1. First order of business, need to get those pinto beans cooked, use what ever method you prefer, stove top, slow cooker, or my preferred way is the pressure cooker. Drain and set the beans aside.
  2. Preheat your oven to 200 C (400 F).
  3. In a large pot, cook the ground beef, onion, and garlic, break up the beef as you cook, when browned and cooked through, drain the fat then add the cooked beans, jalapeno, tomato and tomato sauce, and mix together.
  4. Pour mixture into a heat proof baking dish and spread out evenly. I will guess a 7x11 or 9x13, and I will clarify this when I make it.
  5. Mix together the Jiffy mix, egg, and milk, pour over the meat and bean mixture.
  6. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the cornbread is lightly browned.
  7. Serve. I would serve this with mashed potatoes or a nice green salad.

Low cost.

These sound really good, and I like the addition of the sour cream in the scrambled eggs, that sounds really good. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Instructions
  1. Heat a large non stick pan with 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the mushrooms and cook until near golden brown, season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from the pan and set aside. You are not done with pan yet.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the eggs and 2 tablespoons of sour cream and whisk together, season with salt and pepper to your liking then stir in the ham.
  3. Using the same pan as used for the mushroom, melt 1 tablespoon of butter then add the egg mixture. Scramble the eggs until just cooked, remove from the pan and set aside. For that pan, quickly rinse it out and dry with paper towels, you will use it again.
  4. Same pan, no oil this time, on very low heat, place a tortilla in the pan and heat for about 1 minute on each side.
  5. Take that warm tortilla, spread about 1 tablespoon of sour cream along the middle from left to right or right to left, Add 1/6 of the scrambled eggs on top of the sour cream, sprinkle on some Mozzarella cheese, then top with 1/6 of the mushrooms, and 1 or 2 tablespoons of the tomato. Go easy, don't over fill or it will be hard to roll.
  6. Now take the top of the tortilla, that side farthest from you, and fold that over the filling, and roll the burrito towards you, tucking in the ends as you go. Set this aside seam side down, and repeat with the remaining tortillas, by heating them up, one at a time.
  7. When all the burritos are rolled, heat the same pan you used for the tortillas with 2 tablespoons of oil on medium heat. When oil is hot, place burritos in the pan seam side down. You may need to do this in batches. Cook until the bottom is golden brown, turn and keep cooking to make the whole burrito golden brown. Adding oil as needed.
  8. Serve with hot sauce if desired. These would be perfect for not only breakfast, but for a nice lunch or dinner.
Recipe Notes

This is low cost from what I see, I will break down the costs when I make this, but overall, this is easily less than $1 per serving. If you follow the link listed below, Natasha took some great photos on how to assemble these.

Shortcut: Sour Cream.

This sounds really good, and would be easy to make in a slow cooker as well with slight modifications. On my must cook list to try.

Instructions
  1. In a bowl, mix the olive oil and all spices and cilantro until well mixed, season with salt and pepper to taste. This is your marinade.
  2. On a chopping block, stab the chicken breasts with a fork in several places on each side, then arrange in shallow pan and pour the marinade over the top of the chicken and turn each piece of chicken several times to fully coat the chicken. Let stand for 15 minutes to an hour in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat your oven to 200 C. Arrange chicken breasts in a Pyrex baking dish, top with the onion and bell pepper.
  4. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the oven and top with the cheese slices and bake another 3 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  5. Remove from the oven and put on plates, drizzle some pan juices over the top of each piece. This would be very nice served on a bed of egg noodles, or with a scoop of pinto beans on the side.
Recipe Notes

Chicken breasts run about 80 Baht/kilo for boneless and skinless. The cheese will run about 180 Baht/200 grams. Going with 4 breasts to a kilo (although unlikely) and assuming you use an entire block of cheese, the cost would be about $1.90 per serving. Going with 60 Baht for the chicken and half a block of cheese (more reasonable), the cost would be $1.10 per serving.
