Pork Enchiladas

A creamy pork and black bean filling is wrapped up in corn tortillas and topped with a simple red enchilada sauce.



Pork Enchiladas- Hun... What's for Dinner?



My mom has been visiting for the past week and boy have we been busy. We purged our storage room in the basement and decluttered the garage. We even held a yard sale, to try and make some money on some of our unwanted items. The yard sale was a great way to meet the neighbours and make a few dollars.


During all this, we were ravenous and exhausted. So I decided to take some pulled pork I had in the freezer and turn it into enchiladas, to celebrate us surviving two days of haggling customers at our yard sale. I also made cheese enchiladas for the kiddos, since that is what they prefer. My Mom isn't a big meat eater, but she really enjoyed these pork filled bundles of goodness. They were super filling and just what we needed after a long exhausting weekend.




Pork Enchiladas- Hun... What's for Dinner?




Pork Enchiladas


1 1/2 C leftover pork, shredded

4 oz cream cheese, softened

1 Tbs dehydrated onion (I used Three Onion Rub from Pampered Chef)

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 C sour cream

1 C shredded colby jack cheese, divided

1 C cooked black beans

1/4 C pimento stuffed olives, sliced

red enchilada sauce (recipe follows)

8 corn tortillas


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sour cream, dehydrated onion, garlic and cumin. Mix in the pork, black beans and 1/2 C shredded cheese; until well combined. Set aside.


Heat 1 inch of oil in a cast iron skillet. Once oil is hot, using tongs, place one corn tortilla in the oil. Cook for 30 seconds and flip, cooking for another 30 seconds. Remove to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.


Place a thin layer of enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9x11 inch baking dish.


Fill a corn tortilla with 1/4 C of filling and roll into a cigar shape. Place seam side down into the baking dish and repeat with remaining corn tortillas. Top with additional enchiladas sauce and sprinkle with remaining shredded cheese.


Cover and bake for 30 minutes, until cheese is bubbly. Remove foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with sliced olives and let rest 10 minutes before serving.


Red Enchilada Sauce


1 14.5 oz can tomato sauce

1 Tbs beef bouillon powder

1 Tbs chili powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1 1/2 tsp cumin

1 tsp oregano


Place all ingredients into a small sauce pot and mix to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
