Finding the cost of tacos for two people:

1 lb. ground beef (from a 3-lb. roll at $2.97)
[Enter 2.97 in “price per package” field; enter “3” in the “servings per package” field; enter “1” in “servings prepared” field]

1 pack taco seasoning $0.27
[Enter .27 in “price per package” field; enter “1” in “servings per package” field; enter “1” in “servings prepared” field]

10-pack tortillas $0.89 (at 10 servings per pack, we’re using 4 tortillas, or 4 “servings”)
[Enter .89 in “price per package”; enter “10” in servings per package”; enter “4” in “servings prepared”]

16 oz. container of sour cream at $1 (estimated using 2 oz.)
[Enter “1” in “price per package”; enter “16” in “servings per package” (we’re calling 1 ounce a serving); and enter “2” in “servings prepared”]

16 oz. jar of salsa at $1.89 (estimated using 4 oz.)
[Enter $1.89 in “price per package”; enter “16” in “servings per package”; and “4” in “servings prepared”]

Head of lettuce at $1
[Enter “1” in “price per package”; (estimated using 1/4 of it, so say there are 4 servings per head and state that you’re using 1 serving) and “4” servings per package; “1” serving prepared]

Your final cost with this example equals $2.47 if you input those numbers.
