Cheesy Pork Enchiladas

My friends suggested that I share something a little more “kid friendly”.

The funny part about that is that their kids are a lot like John’s kids. They eat what most people consider to be “grown up food”.

I think these Cheesy Pork Enchiladas are both!

I made it a lot during the week when the kids were young.

You know those nights when everyone needs to go in a different direction?

Those nights.

It is a total cheat meal.

I use precooked Cuban Pork from my local grocery store’s deli, 2 cans of enchilada sauce, cream cheese, shredded cheese, onion, garlic, cilantro, cumin, and tortillas.

You can use corn or flour tortillas — I use one that is a mixture of corn and flour.

Sometimes I buy pre-shredded cheese. Sometimes I use shredded chicken.

Like most of the recipes I make, it is never the same way twice.

Sauté the chopped onion in butter (or olive oil) until tender. Add chopped garlic and sauté for another second or two.

Add some of the enchilada sauce, cumin, and cream cheese.

Once the cream cheese is melted, add about a cup of shredded cheese.

Or more if you’re like me.

Combine everything together — it will be super cheesy and delicious.

Add cilantro and roll.

Place them in a 9×13″ baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with no-stick cooking spray and the rest of the enchilada sauce.

Bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes and that is it!

Top with guacamole, sour cream, salsa, hot sauce, more cilantro… you get the idea.

It’s embarrassingly easy and perfect for kids of all ages!
