Are you ready? We’ve got another awesome meal plan for 20 Meals at Costco for $150! A couple of things first…
- Check out the original 20 Meals from Costco for $150.
- Here is a copy of my receipt, if you’re curious!
- Yes, I realize this makes for roughly $7.50 dinners. Meat at Costco is more expensive than sale prices at grocery stores, and many argue that the quality is better, which according to their policy of only carrying Choice and Prime grade meat makes sense! Plus, you’ll have LOTS of leftovers, which you’ll see in the video below that helps reduce the actual meal prices down!
- Produce prices may vary by region. And season.
- Meals are for a family of 4. Larger families, or families with teenagers will need to adjust quantities.
- Meals are as kid friendly, family friendly, and allergy friendly as I could make them. Hopefully you will enjoy them!
- Mix and Match Meals – because of the bulk purchasing, this is really a game of mixing and matching ingredients. The ingredients are very common and work in a wide variety of recipes, so feel free to use them in other recipes besides those listed below. Nothing is set in stone!
- Some pantry and fridge ingredients like milk, butter, spices etc. are not listed on the Costco Ingredients List, since most household already have those items. However, every ingredient you need for each recipe is listed on each individual recipe linked below AND on the Costco Printable at the end of the post.
Without further ado…
- Slow Cooker Italian Chicken and Potatoes (freezer pack)
- BBQ Meatballs on Potatoes (freezer friendly)
- BBQ Meatball Sliders (freezer friendly)
- (2) Taco Meat, serve with Tortillas and Corn (freezer pack)
- (2) Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas (freezer pack)
- (2) Slow Cooker Chicken and Sausage Stew (freezer pack)
- (2) Corn Chicken Chili (freezer pack)
A note about Tuna ~ If you prefer not to use tuna, then you can purchase a 6 pk of 12.5 oz canned chicken for only $11.49 at Costco that you can substitute instead. All tuna recipes can use canned chicken or purchase additional chicken breasts, cook them in the slow cooker so they are soft and easily shredded and use as a tuna substitute.
We did a live chat, walking through the plan, the recipes and the ingredients. I share tips and tricks for each recipe! I hope the video is helpful to you in understanding how this all works!
