Salsa Verde Beef Street Tacos with Cilantro Slaw

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on April 14, 2014

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 […]


Salsa Verde Shredded Pork Tacos

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.

Slow Cooker Honey Ham and Bean Soup

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 3, 2014

Seriously, dinner doesn’t get any easier than this. This is what I call a “Chop, Dump and Run” kind of dinner. (And if you added carrots, it would be a one dish slow cooker dinner…my absolute favorite kind.) This soup is sweet from the honey, with a touch of smoke, and a slight bite from […]

Shredded Pork Verde Tacos

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 1, 2013

I find that I turn to tacos more and more. Because the ingredients are cheap (10¢ limes, 38¢ avocados, 48¢ cabbage heads, 29¢ big bunch of fresh cilantro, yo!) and because I know my kiddos will gobble them up…in some form or another. Two will pick out all the parts from inside the taco and […]


Chili with Caramelized Onion Cornbread

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 28, 2013

I heart caramelized onions. I adore the flavor and I especially love the way they make the house smell when they are caramelizing. Its a tossup between caramelizing onions and roasting garlic. Jury is still out on that one. So I’m teaming up with Formula 409 and their ‘America’s Love Affair with Grease’ campaign…helping home chefs […]

Y’all are just going to have to trust me on this. A little kick and spice in the chili, plus a little sweet from the waffles…a totally party on the plate and on your palate. Also, I thought that I had some shredded cheese in the freezer to add on top of these waffles, but […]
