Pork & Rice Enchiladas

Pork & Rice EnchiladasI’m ALWAYS looking for fast, delicious, low-cost meals for our family.

The problem??  A lot of the recipes I see call for  a TON of ingredients in LARGE quantities.  A quick enchilada meal that requires a whole rotisserie chicken…not feasible for this growing family.

This recipe was created to use some pulled pork we received from my parents – one of the many benefits of living next door:)  I froze the shredded pork in 1 cup servings – so that’s what I used.  Although I pulled out some of the meat prior to making the filling – the kids aren’t fans of enchiladas preferring to eat the meat, rice, cheese, and tortilla separate – imagine?!?

This is a FAST and EASY recipe to prepare – taking only about 5-10 minutes once the rice is cooked.  We don’t eat a ton of Spanish or Mexican rice around here so I just use the packets for this recipe.  I think this would be a great use for left-over rice though if you had some available.  I’ve gotten in the habit of making the rice during lunch prep, assembling during nap, and then its all ready to pop in the oven early evening.

Thanks for taking a look!  As always, let me know if you give it a try.
