I used to serve Beanfeast when I cooked for flatmates and believe it or not I used to pad it out to make it go further! Baked beans in the spag bol, tinned toms in the chilli etc. Add some cheap rice and I could feed four adults.
A pack of plain soya mince would be cheaper than Beanfeast, but perhaps not quite so convenient.
What about a pudding for the tin? Economy brand tinned peaches don't cost a lot, or perhaps a pack of jelly.
There's a classic book about bedsit cookery by (I think) Katharine Whitehorn which lists the basic essentials ie dried herbs, mustard etc which can be used to make the plainest meals interesting. She reckoned it could all be fitted into a shoe box or similar, for bedsits with no kitchen cupboard!
