Weeknight Meal Planner: Week of February 23rd
This week's meal planner is all about serving healthy, affordable family meals. A wee bit of canned chipotle chiles goes a long way in infusing this hearty chili with rich, smoky flavor and a hint of heat. This super-saving recipe costs just $4.69 to feed a family of four.
This healthy whole-grain spin on a comfort food classic is indulgent, creamy, and a guaranteed family-pleaser. Cost for 4: $10.31.
Each person gets three filling tacos for a satisfying meal full of fresh veggie crunch. Garlic, paprika, cumin, and vinegar turn ground beef into near-instant Mexican-style chorizo, much leaner than the traditional pork version. Cost for 4: $8.37.
Serve this pork recipe with stone-ground yellow grits or polenta to soak up the tangy, creamy sauce that's made with creme fraiche and Dijon mustard. Cost for 4: $9.80.
This pasta dinner is a game changer: You use just enough liquid to cook the pasta--no colander needed. Cost for 4: $8.43.
Blondies are simply brownies without the chocolate. A light-colored metal pan is your best bet for even baking and cakey, moist blondies.
