Summer is over, which means easy-breezy BBQs are off the table, and you’re back to meal prepping during busy sports seasons and school nights filled with homework and studying. Besides that extra stress, your weekly food budget has gone up, thanks to everything costing more. From rising meat prices to increased frozen foods, families are looking for easy ways to still serve delicious dinners without spending more.

Welcome to my fall dinner hack for my family: Kraft Heinz sauces, which has taken my plain ole’ meals to something delicious, for not that much more money. So what Kraft Heinz sauces have been a hit? A.1. Original Sauce, $4.28 at Walmart, Lea & Perrins The Original Worcestershire Sauce, $2.78 at Walmart, and Kraft’s Original Slow-Simmered Barbecue BBQ Sauce, $1.18 at Walmart.

For $1.18, I use the Kraft Heinz BBQ sauce for endless recipes: to marinade grilled chicken, pork chops, and ribs, for a dip for my kids’ chicken nuggets, and for a super easy Crockpot recipe that takes 5-minute prep time and costs less than $10 (for a family of four, that makes this recipe just $2.50 per serving!). Bookmark this recipe — it’ll be a fave.
