Chef Curtis Stone's Takeout Intervention
Corn tortillas are the first ingredient to go in the cart. They cost less than a dollar and will be used to make a healthier version of Matt's nachos. "We're going to bake them," Curtis says.
Next, they head to the cheese aisle. "You're much better to buy it in a whole block rather than already grated," Curtis says.
Instead of salmon, the shoppers buy a tilapia fillet, which is on sale for $1.95. Next stop? The meat section. "What you want to do when you get to the meat section is just scour the cabinet," Curtis says. Steaks that are nearing their sell-by date are usually marked down. They find a package that was $11.75 for the three steaks, but now it's only $4.82!
At checkout, Curtis's advice really pays off. Matt and Melissa get all the ingredients they need for $17.31.
