Family Dollar – Family Gourmet

Not too long ago, my children were so excited that Charlotte, NC finally got some snow. They enjoyed their time outside, as well as taking a break from our crazy schedule. After a fun-filled day we decided on a quick and easy snack. Recently I received some great products, compliments of Family Dollar, to make a corn and black bean salsa from their Family Gourmet line.

The Family Gourmet Line is Family Dollar’s own private brand. With ingredients such as corn, black beans, taco mix, salsa and diced tomatoes with green chili I was able to make a yummy salsa within less than 10 minutes and serve it with chips. My family just loved it and it was so easy to make! The ingredients were definitely comparable to brand name products.  What was also great about the corn and black bean salsa was we were able to make tacos and add the salsa into the tacos as well. It was a great to be able to make something quick and feed my very hungry children.

You can visit Family Dollar on their website and find lots of fun, easy and affordable recipes. Their website is simple enough to navigate and there are loads of great in-store coupons. And the products used in the recipes will keep you within your family budget!

For more than 50 years, Family Dollar has been providing value and convenience to customers in easy-to-shop neighborhood locations. Family Dollar’s mix of name brands, and quality, private brand merchandise, appeals to shoppers in more than 7,600 stores in rural and urban settings across 45 states.  Helping families save on the items they need with everyday low prices creates a strong bond with customers who refer to their neighborhood store as “my Family Dollar.” Headquartered in Matthews, North Carolina, just outside of Charlotte.
