To say that we are obsessed with Trader Joe’s would be the understatement of the century. We regularly take strolls through the aisles filled with salad kits, brightly colored bags of frozen food (looking at you, naan and Mandarin chicken!), and groovy sauces and cheeses galore. We have our all-time favorite products we always stock up on (let us know your go-to Trader Joe’s grocery items in the comments below!). And we’re always on the pulse of new releases moments after we hear about them.
More often than not, these Trader Joe’s ingredients are so unique and creatively inspirational that we dream up entire recipes built on them. The result? Affordable and easy meals with eons of high reward.
What’s at your local Trader Joe’s will vary, but there’s a pretty good chance you’ll be able to find what you need to make most of these recipes. So grab your grocery list and a pen. From sheet pan nachos to two-ingredient roasted chicken thighs to many ways to riff on TJ’s beloved cauliflower gnocchi, let this ultimate list of Trader Joe’s recipes lead the way for easy dinners now and forever.
