Dinnertime can be one of the most hectic times of the day so I choose meals options that are easy but still offer big flavor. Jake has swim team every day and Jeb has football and tutor 3 nights per week. In addition to our running around, there’s also homework and a variety of other activities that all have to be accomplished in those few hours after school—but before bed.

Thanks to Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork items, I can serve up fantastic meals that have big flavor but don’t take up too much of my valuable time. Being able to put a meal on the table in 30 minutes or less means that I can get more accomplished and that makes me a happy gal!

Start the pork in your slow cooker early in the day. Then you just shred, wrap and top to have dinner on the table with very little effort.

Now let’s talk about taste. These are probably some of the most amazing enchiladas that I have ever put in my mouth. Forget your local Mexican joint…these will put them to shame! Once you try my recipe you might not believe that it’s really so easy to prepare.

Now I actually make them two different ways to appease the picky eaters in my family. I happen to love both and will happily have one of each for dinner. It only requires an extra dish an extra can of enchilada sauce to make me super mom.
