Feeding a well-balanced meal to a group of picky kids every night can be, well, difficult. Especially when my main goal is to get in and out of the kitchen in as little time as possible. One pot wonders, straight out of the oven dishes, and easy prep ahead plans are just a few of mom’s special tricks. As well as putting a quick spin on family favorites, like our Pork Burrito Stuffed Peppers using a Smithfield Slow Smoked Mesquite Flavor Pork Loin Filet.
Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork provides real fresh, real flavor, real fast and real solutions for real life. Available in the refrigerated meat department at Walmart, Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is the star of a delicious, hassle-free meal in no time. Now for even less, as Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork Filets are on rollback through the month of April!
Ready to be grilled, roasted, sautÃ©ed or slow-cooked, Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is perfectly marinated, perfectly seasoned, and perfect on even the busiest of nights.
Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is a staple around here. Since the pork is perfectly seasoned as is, I usually roast it in the oven then pair with a simple macaroni and cheese, salad, and potatoes for a full meal that everyone loves. I found the Smithfield Slow Smoked Mesquite Flavor Pork Loin Filet on our latest trip to Walmart, however, and knew it would be delicious in mexican-inspired Pork Burrito Stuffed Peppers!
Another great thing about these Pork Burrito Stuffed Peppers is that you really only need about half of a 1.5 pound pork loin to make 8 peppers. That means there will be leftovers for shredded pork sandwiches for lunch the next day. Or, include all the pork in extra of the filling along with some leftover peppers and wrap it up in a tortilla for actual Pork Burritos!
I love stuffed peppers, though. Always have. There’s just something about a colorful, tender, juicy bell pepper stuffed with cheesy rice and pork deliciousness then roasted to ooey, gooey perfection. It truly is a complete meal.
Oh, but it’s not just cheese, rice, and shredded Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork. There’s also black beans, corn, and salsa.
The pork can be made ahead of time, when you have more time. Though it really takes no time at all. Shred and store in the fridge until ready to use. At which point, this is a meal that comes together in under 30 minutes as I save even more time by using pouches of rice that can be cooked in the microwave. 2 pouches for 2 minutes. Combine ingredients and one cup of cheese in a large bowl before packing into peppers.
Bake in a 425 degree oven for 20 minutes, covered. Then uncover and top with remaining cup of cheese. Return to the oven for another 5 minutes until the cheese is melted.
Once out of the oven, finish with a sprinkle of green onion and cilantro. These Pork Burrito Stuffed Peppers can be served with any additional condiments you like with burritos such as sour cream, more salsa, and guacamole.
So much goodness in every bite! Some of the World’s Pickiest Eaters agree. These Pork Burrito Stuffed Peppers are a new family favorite. And mom is in and out of the kitchen in 30 minutes, with the oven doing most of the work. What’s your go-to family meal idea?
