Salsa Verde Beef Street Tacos with Cilantro Slaw

Well, I’m officially on a salsa verde shredded meat kick. Last week, it was pork tacos with salsa verde and some chopped jalapenos. This week, it’s this shredded beef with an simple cilantro slaw on top. Both meats were cooked in the slow cooker. (Because I NEED my slow cooker these days…here’s why. After this […]

Chicken Pineapple Stir-fry with Coconut Rice

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on April 11, 2014

Sometimes the ingredient stars just align and the meal that I was thinking about, turns out even better than I imagined. I wanted to make something that I knew the boys would love, using a can of coconut milk I’ve had in the pantry for a few weeks. (I purchased it with this recipe in […]

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on April 9, 2014

Delish. That is all. So these shredded pork were enjoyed by everyone in the family. Yes…everyone…including the dog… I suppose we could call this a photography hazard…placing the food on the deck floor because that was the best spot with the best lighting… #DogApproved y’all! Ha. This shredded pork was cooked with a few ingredients…garlic […]

Y’all…I’m thrilled to be bringing another great recipe from HurstBeans, a longtime partner of $5 Dinners. We all know how delicious, filling and hearty beans can be…in fact, just this evening I was talking with the boys about how we’ll be enjoying many a beans-based meal in their lifetime…because they are bottomless pits. And beans […]

Ham and Cheese Breakfast Egg-Tacos

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on March 31, 2014

Having a mixed bag of food allergies and intolerances in our family makes certain dinner ideas and concepts a challenge…but what I love about this one…it easily catered to my egg-free child and my gluten-free child, both of whom happen to be dairy free as well. Ryan enjoyed this ham and egg rollup that you […]

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on March 24, 2014

This recipe is part of the latest 21 Gluten Free Meals from Costco Plan. Chicken + Potatoes + Cheese + Bacon…it’s the perfect ‘quad-fecta’…because trifecta doesn’t work here. Top with some green onions and/or sour cream and you’re in baked potato heaven. Except these are baked potatoes. This is yet another really simple ‘load and […]

Chunky Guacamole with Mango & Red Onion

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on March 7, 2014

This one surprised me. I’m a huge fan of homemade guacamole, definitely prefer it over store bought. (I usually doctor up the store bought with lime juice, cumin, cilantro and possibly other mixins.) About homemade guacamole…it’s really a highly personal thing. It’s almost like you shouldn’t mess with a good and simple homemade guacamole. But […]
