Quick & Easy Dinner Idea – Pork Rolled Tacos

Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork. The opinions and text are all mine.

We are always looking for easy meal ideas, not just during the week but for any night. Our kids are busy after school so we try to come up with things that are simple along with easy and, of course, we need to find something everyone likes. Depending on the night, time is also important so we need to find recipes that are quick, dinner in under 30 minutes quick.7 and 11 year old kids playing tennis

Homemade & Mexican Inspired Pork Rolled Tacos Recipe –

Ingredients include –

  • Smithfield Marinated Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Pork Tenderloin
  • Corn Tortillas

While I know this may seem too easy, the marinated Smithfield pork adds so much flavor especially when pan fried.


Now to make this Mexican Restaurant inspired plate, ingredients include and are optional:

* Avocado

* Sour Cream

* Refried Beans

* Yellow Rice

* Jalapenos

* Cilantro

* Cheese

* Lettuce

* Salsa

* Pan With 1/2 inch of Oil For Frying

I don’t think recipes have to be very hard to be great. This recipe is very easy and will feed your hungry kiddos in no time!

1. Start by getting your ingredients together. I used easy to make beans and rice and hand cut the rest of the veggies. Once the pork cooks easily on the grill, it comes together quickly and easily.

2. Start grilling the pork per instructions. I heated my grill to hot and cooked the pork tenderloin for 20-25 minutes after 20 minutes of hot change the temperature to preheat. Turn once during cooking, avoid opening lid.

3. Depending on what easy rice you use, make sure to cook for around 25 minutes. Just enough for pork to cook.

4. Cooking required minimal effort and it was easy.

7. Cook for several minutes on a medium-high heat. Be careful Oil is HOT!

8. Next get your beans cooked a few minutes prior to rolled tacos being complete

9. Simply plate it all on a bed of lettuce. I put my sides of refried beans and Mexican rice on each side and added salsa, sour cream and mashed avocado as toppings.

We like to serve with some rice, sour cream, and fresh avocado for dipping. It’s a great tasting meal that I know everyone will eat. Shopping at WinCo the price of this meal was super affordable, fed many people and was easy to prepare.
