It seems like Trader Joe’s is TikTok’s favorite grocery store; at least, it’s the undefeated champion on our “For You” pages. From weekly hauls to reviews of the latest seasonal items, Trader Joe’s content is becoming inescapable. Did you know there’s even a #Blackgirlsintraderjoes hashtag, or #BGITJ, on Instagram that started with this creator? Honestly, with the delicious recipes you can whip up on budgets of less than $50, it’s an understandable place to obsess over.

According to TikTok, if you’re already a frequent shopper, or oppositely, just not convinced, you must try these five meals and snacks made with ingredients from TJ’s. Rumor has it: they’re so yummy that you won’t mind adding the grocer to your Sunday morning errands run despite its crowded weekend surge. Check out what you need to make them at home below:
