I absolutely love Trader Joe's. The staff is friendly, the products are fun and there is a ton of variety!! There are even several blogs about it. Including a What's Good at Trader Joe's blog where a couple of guys try out products and give reviews. I have never regretted taking their advice.
Brown Rice-frozen packs of brown rice. They cook in 3 minutes in the microwave and come out fluffy and delicious. So easy!!
Roasted Corn-I love corn, but I never think to roast it. The bags of frozen roasted corn and great! I usually throw some on my salads for some extra flavor.
Chile Lime Chicken Burgers-I recently discovered these gems. The flavor is outstanding! Great for a burger or to crumble up as a salad topping. Or just to eat right off the grill!!
Garlic Olive Oil-This is cheaper than a lot of your infused olive oils. I think the quality is good and you can really tasted the garlic. I pretty much use it for all of my cooking!
Steel Cut Oats-These last for a long time and are quick cooking. Almond milk, peanutbutter, honey and a dash of cinammon...yes please!
Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup-I pair this with a grilled cheese sandwich for lunches in the fall and winter. Perfect combination for a warm and comforting meal!!
Chipotle Pepper Hummus-Super creamy and flavorful hummus. I love the hint of smokiness from the chipotle peppers.
Sea Salt Pita Crackers-A must buy because they pair nicely with the hummus!! :)
Avocados-Trader Joe's has great produce, but I usually try to buy from the Farmer's Market when I can. The exception is avocados. They have great avocados for a really good price!! They are always cheaper than the grocery store and avocados do not grow in the midwest...so TJ's for the win.
Dark Chocolate Covered Carmels-These are great to have instead of a full dessert. The 2 pieces always satisfy my chocolate/sweet cravings.
Charles Shaw Wine aka...Two Buck Chuck- It is actually $2.99, but I am not complaining!! The Cabernet and Shiraz are probably the best of the Charles Shaw wines. Honestly, they are not bad...especially not for $3!!!
There you have it...my Trader Joe's must haves. What is on your list from Trader Joe's? I always love trying new things from the store!!
