3 Quick and Easy 15-Minute Meals After a Long Day

Finding time to prepare a delicious dinner can often feel like a challenging task in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. However, with these quick and easy 15-minute meal ideas, you can enjoy a satisfying, family-friendly meal without the stress of lengthy cooking and prep times.

Quick Recipes:

Chicken Enchiladas Suizas:

Ingredients for Approx. 3-4 servings:


Step 1: Preheat oven to 375°F.

Step 2: Remove the plastic cover from the oven-proof tray.

Step 3: Cover the tray with aluminum foil.

Step 4: Place it in the oven for 8 minutes (if thawed) or 15 minutes (if frozen).

Step 5: Remove the foil, top it with cheese, and return it to the oven for 6-8 minutes.

Step 6: The cheese should start to brown, and the filling should reach an internal temperature of 165°F. Heating times may vary with what kind of tray or oven you use, so keep an eye on it.

Step 7: Remove the tray from the oven and then enjoy your delicious Chicken Enchiladas Suizas feast!

BBQ Carnitas Sandwich:

Ingredients for Approx. 3 Servings:


Step 1: Embrace the thaw-some vibes! Give that bag of flavor a warm welcome by letting it defrost in the fridge overnight. Patience is a virtue, but the flavors will be worth it!

Step 2: Pour the carnitas into a pan and cover with BBQ sauce. Heat on medium until the sauce is bubbling, and the meat is heated to 165°F. (If you have one, you can use a meat thermometer to to check this precisely.)

Step 4: Take your bun and pile the carnitas onto one side. Top with onion, tomato, and pickles, and close the sandwich.

**Pro tip: get more bang for your buck by making your sandwich open-face, topping it with cheese, and sticking it under a broiler or toaster oven. When the cheese melts, remove and top with onion, tomato, and pickles.**



Ingredients for Approx. 2 Servings:


Step 1: Remove the frozen pozole from the freezer.

Step 2: Prepare a large pot with enough water to fully submerge the plastic-wrapped pozole. Bring to a boil.

Step 3: Lower the plastic-wrapped pozole into the pot of boiling water, making sure it is fully covered.

Step 4: Allow the pozole to heat up in the water bath for 15-20 minutes. During this time, occasionally stir the water to ensure even heating. Stirring is essential because it prevents a cold zone from developing around the food, which could insulate it from the hot water.

Step 5: Remove the pot from the heat.

Step 6: Carefully remove the plastic-wrapped pozole from the pot and place it on a heat-resistant surface.

Step 7: Open the plastic wrap and pour the heated pozole directly into a serving pot or bowl.

Step 8: Garnish with avocado, lime, and cilantro as desired. Serve and enjoy!
