Hatch chili mac & cheese
The frozen mac & cheese has been a TJ's staple since at least 1850 (not an exact date, but it's close), so it makes sense that it comes with the employee stamp of approval, what with its advertised smoky heat, which you usually only get when you cook at home and forget to turn the burner off.
Spring might be the season du jour, but when the temperatures drop at night, it's hard to say no to a "nice and hearty" meal. One employee we talked to said it's like eating a "beef stew, but with mashed potatoes on top." Sold.
Paneer tikka masala
Another highlight in the line of frozen Indian meals, this won points because it's vegetarian, contains spinach basmati rice and a delicious Indian cheese, and if you pair it with some naan, which you can also buy at TJ's, "it becomes a solid dinner."
