Totally In Love Tuesday - Trader Joe's Paneer Tikka Masala

Happy TILT!!!  I hope everyone is having a simply fabulous day.  Today, I'm going to share something from Trader Joe's that I love... umm but I love everything at Trader Joe's... so there are probably going to be many more :)

Where to begin... along time ago, about three years to be exact, I tried Indian food for the very first time.  Chicken tikka saag....I fell instantly in love.  As a child, I was never adventurous when it came to my food choices.. but now that simply isn't the case.  My dish of choice is always saag paneer... now while TJ's doesn't have that... they do have this....

I was super skeptical.  It's gluten-free and frozen... how great could it really be?  Hmmm but this is TJ's and I've never hated anything from TJ's....  Magic happened when I got to the checkout.  The cashier exclaimed, have you had this before?!?!  Ummm, no I haven't.  She then went on to sing it's praises for the rest of my visit - a very good sign as this happened when I purchased the peanut butter cream cheese. 

As soon as I got home, it was conveniently dinner time.  I broke into this package faster than a robber at a bank.  Within 5 minutes, I was incredibly surprised.  This was incredible!  It wasn't greasy...don't lie, you know saag paneer is, even though you pretend that it isn't like I do...and was packed with flavor.

Add this to your shopping list!  There are other varieties involving chicken - but I can't give my review since I haven't tried them - if you have let me know!

What's your favorite Trader Joe's item?
