Beat the Receipt is the only affordable cooking challenge that gives a pro chef and a food influencer $20 each to shop for and cook a meal for two using the same main ingredient. As the challengers try to stay under $20, the pressure is on with shopping and cooking plans changing on the fly. Beat the Receipt is the perfect show for anyone who loves to improvise at the market and in the kitchen, or wants to learn some amazing affordable recipes.

Following a $40 Thanksgiving meal for four challenge, chef Fermín Nuñez and challenger Joey Camasta are back in this week's episode of Beat the Receipt, and this time, they're tackling leftovers. The two have to take leftovers from last week's episode and transform them into a new one-serving dish with just $5 to spend on additional ingredients—save for one free budget breaker. Nuñez opts for a Thanksgiving quesadilla using leftovers from his brick chicken, while Camasta makes Thanksgiving egg rolls with his leftover pork rollatini. Watch the video above to see how they beat their receipts.
