Thank you all for your patience with me in getting this plan together! We ran into a few hiccups…then I was out of town for several weeks…then I discovered that I forgot an ingredient in the total, etc. But it’s here…it’s done…and it’s ready for you!!!
Notes & Disclaimers about this Gluten Free Plan
- Yes, I realize this makes for $7.85 dinners…but they are gluten free…pennies more expensive, but still really cheap! Meat at Costco is more expensive than sale prices at grocery stores, and many argue that the quality is better.
- As always, you are responsible for reading labels and ensuring that everything is Gluten Free.
- See all of the FAQs for the Costco Meal Plans here.
Finally, please check the Costco Store Deals list, complete with updated store coupons and any matching coupons or savings offers. This list is updated weekly and is available in the new Favado grocery savings app too!
Important note about the BBQ Sauce pictured above…in my haste, I picked up the wrong brand…as the one pictured contains modified food starch which of course is gluten. In the notes below and prices and list, I’ve included the Stubb’s brand in the shopping list and price list, which doesn’t contain any gluten! Wanted to clarify!
In order to keep this plan simple and make the most of the different ingredient sizes (hello, 15 lbs. of potatoes & 100 tortillas!!!), I decided to do 10 meals times two plus one.
- Chicken Enchilada Casserole with corn x2
- Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup x2
- Orange Glazed Pork Chops with mashed potatoes and veggies x2
- Slow Cooker Sweet Potato and Chicken Curry x2
- Shepherd’s Pie x2
- Beef Tamale Skillet Dinner with veggies x2
- Southwest Rice Pilaf x2
- Ranch Chicken and Potato Casserole with veggies x2
- BBQ Chicken Street Tacos with rice and corn x2
- Basil Balsamic Chicken with rice & veggies x2
- Sloppy Joe Bowls

Disclaimer: I have no formal relationship with Costco and am not paid by them to share these plans. I created these plans to help myself (and you!) spend less money at Costco, while using up all the bulk ingredients without them going to waste. Hope they help your family as much as they help our family!
