Don’t let the name fool you. These Carnitas Enchiladas are pretty easy to make. The trick is cooking the pork in a slow cooker. It’s easy, and the meat comes out moist and flavorful. I love how this dish looks look like you put a ton of time and effort into dinner… when I really didn’t 😉

These loaded fries are really good, and they are pretty simple to make. The carnitas meat is made in a slow cooker, and we used frozen french fries.
