Fortunately, ALDI has fresh ingredients for easy, affordable dinners and snacks you can fold right into your weekly meal schedule this fall and beyond. From produce-stacked rainbow snack boards to gooey-delicious nachos, these recipes are sure to replace any back-to-school blues with instant cravings — so you can have fun (and ease mealtime stress) while you get back into the swing of things. 

1. Buffalo Ranch Chicken and Cauliflower Rice Casserole

2. Easy Roasted Vegetable Flatbread

Flatbread with roasted veggies is a quick and delicious meal for the whole family.

Nothing says “party” like pizza, so just imagine the joy a weekly flatbread would bring to the table. This quick-and-easy recipe brings together vegetables tossed with Simply Nature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and herbs that are roasted and piled atop ALDI Specially Selected Original Naan Bread for a fresh, affordable ’za. It’s traditional enough to satisfy the kids with just enough sophistication (hello, feta cheese!) to keep the adults coming back for seconds.

3. Produce-packed Snack Board

Enjoy a colorful treat with a produce-packed snack board.

A snack board done well should be an explosion of color, flavor and aesthetic appeal. You’ll want to take a picture of this rainbow of healthy snacks before its contents — fresh olives, blueberries, grapes, bell peppers, crackers, hummus, smoked salmon and other goodies — vanish without a trace. Good thing ALDI has a wide assortment of affordable fresh produce and healthy snacks to build on your board’s savory success.

5. Sheet Pan Shrimp Nachos

Pile on the cheesy goodness with sheet pan shrimp nachos.

For an ooey-gooey, sharable snack, nothing beats a plate of cheesy nachos. The appetizer becomes a meal with this recipe, going from pan to plate in just 30 minutes. As with pizza, nachos are great on their own but transformative with fun fixings, making ALDI Sea Queen Medium Cooked Shrimp a perfect addition to this fiesta of a meal. Combined with queso, fresh avocado and more, this recipe is “nacho” average weeknight dinner, but it is certainly one you’ll want to repeat, especially with the low prices ALDI shoppers can count on.
