Try these pork enchiladas that are boasting with flavor! And all that with some leftover pork! Don’t you just LOVE leftover cooking? It saves waste, time, and imparts tons of flavor! These enchiladas are a little smokey, a little spicy, and a lot flavorful. These pork enchiladas have that cheesy goodness you’re looking for and they don’t take all day to make.

I love making recipes with leftover meat! It cuts the prep and cooking time down a ton. So I’ll make a bit bunch of meat, such as a whole chicken or a big ole pork roast, and turn out meal after meal with the meat I get from it. The first night you can serve the meat with some sides, and then you can use the leftovers to create so many things like these amazing enchiladas.

And it only takes minutes to do once you have the original meat made. And the best part is you can cook these meats in minutes in the instant pot or set it and forget it and leave for work all day and have it cooking away in your crock pot. These are the kind of meats you don’t have to stand over to make taste unforgettable! You can even do a turkey breast that way and think of the possibilities for that. Knowing what to eat to save money is not as complicated as you might think.
