Trader Joe’s Taco Night

TGIF everyone!

This is kinda how I feel today! I really have no business  TGIFing it up since I’ve been on vacation all week. I had yet another productive day yesterday and some fantastic eats!

I had a little sushi lunch date at Ten Ichi. I ordered the spicy salmon roll, and the unaghi avocado roll (eel).


Spicy Salmon


Unaghi Avocado


 I stopped at Trader Joe’s on my way home and picked up a few key ingredients for dinner.


Can I just take a second to praise Trader Joe’s Guacamole kit?!


This has become one of my favorite buys at TJ’s! It’s about $4 and it includes all the necessary ingredients to homemade guac!

  • 2 avocados
  • 1 plum tomato
  • garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeno


Guac is one of my favorite dips/condiments but whenever you buy it in stores, you never know what all they added. I recently found out that a local place we get food from puts sour cream in their guac. That like triples the calories and fat! By making it at home you know exactly what’s going into it.

Some other ingredients I picked up are…

Corn and Chile Salsa


Taco Seasoning




I used a package of ground chicken instead of beef. Just what we had on hand.


Homemade guacamole, and some sauteed peppers and onions.


Taco bowl!


It was an A+ dinner! This corn salsa? Unbelievable. The corn is sweet but the peppers pack a punch! It’s an incredible balance and it added so much diversity to the meal. I need to figure out another use for this stuff!

Alright I actually have a very busy and exciting day ahead of me! I will fill you all in later. 🙂

Happy Friday!

Questions of the Day:

Sweet or spicy?

What are your plans for the upcoming weekend?

    • Oh yea?! I thin kit’s actually Trader Jose hahah. They do have incredible salsas. We got the Chipotle one once, and it was too spicy even for Nolan! I just love that their stuff is cheap so even if you don’t like it it’s not a huge waste of $$.
